Christian Krohg (Christian Krohg)

Christian Krohg

Painter,  Author.  He is probably best-known for his seascapes,  which he depicted from unusual angles. His novel “Albertine” (1886) caused such a scandal with its sexual suggestiveness that it was confiscated by the police.  Educated in Germany and later in Paris, Krohg was also a journalist for the Oslo-based newspaper “Verdens Gang” from 1890 to 1910. He also served as the Professor Director at the Norwegian Academy of Arts from 1909 until his death. He was the husband of painter Oda Krohg and father of painter Per Krohg. (bio by: K)
