Description

“Fra Smedien i Hornbæk”. From the forge in Hornbæk. Sketch. Signed S. K. Pencil on paper. Sheet size 42×58 cm.

The large sketch is a preliminary study for “Fra Smedien i Hornbæk” (From the forge in Hornbæk) from 1875 (91×119 cm) at the Hirschsprung Collection.

In 1873, Krøyer spent his first summer in Hornbæk, where he painted small beach and aerial studies and genre paintings. In addition, he had two major projects running outdoors and indoors. That meant he wasn't dependent on the weather. In good weather Krøyer worked on “Fiskere ved Stokken i Hornbæk” (A gathering of fishermen on the beach) from1875 with the measurement 109×153 cm (private collection). On rainy days he went indoors and worked on “Fra Smedien in Hornbæk”.

Another study for “Fra Smedien i Hornbæk”, see cat. no. 114.

Condition

The paper has been mounted at the corners. A few brown spots, perhaps from insects. Examined in frame.
