For the breath of life is the sunlight…….
Skagens Museum, in which the striking Sunlight in the Blue Room now hangs, was founded in the early twentieth century by members of an influential art colony, located on the northern part of Jutland, Denmark. Anna Ancher (1854-1935), creator of the painting above, was one of its leading artists. She and her husband Michael. also part of the group, had one child Helga whom her mother has lovingly captured in the first stages of a knitting lesson.
