Christen Kobke (1810-1848) was arguably the greatest painter of Denmark's 'Golden Age', investing the faces of ordinary people and the simplest details of town or country with universal resonance. Published to accompany an exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland, this first study of his work in English reproduces 80 of his luminous paintings, sets his life and work in their social and historical context, and highlights his exquisite and innovative handling of light and colour.
