Johannes Larsen (1867-1961)

Johannes Larsen was the son of a merchant in Kerteminde. He received his artistic training at Zahrtmann's School in Copenhagen, where he became a member of the group of artists with the name: The Funen painters.
From the earliest childhood Johannes Larsen had experienced artists within reach in the form of his talented uncle, portrait painter Johan Peter Bless (1825-80). And also the painter Christian Eckardt (1832-1914) and the artist Lorentz Frølich (1820-1908), who in recent years lived in Paris, was a part of the family.
Johannes Larsen built in 1901-02 his house on Mill Hill (Møllebakken) in Kerteminde, where he moved in with painter-wife Alhed and their two boys, Jeppe Andreas "Puf" and Johan "Lysse". Throughout his long artistic life, Johannes Larsen had a very large production of oil paintings, watercolors and graphic works.
