The Art

Johannes Larsen's uncle, the artist Johan Peter Bless, who stayed with his family off and on at the merchant house, inspired him to paint. He started at an early age, and painted his first oil painting at only 10. He went to Copenhagen at 16, where he received instruction in perspective drawing from Christian Kingsley. Then he studied at the Artist's School of Study, but when his teacher left, he changed to Zahrtmann's School. There he studied for 5 winters, returning to Kerteminde during the warmer months.
