Painter and co-founder of Skagens Museum Laurits Tuxen was born #onthisday in 1853. During his career he travelled widely painting portraits for Europe's royal families, while his motifs in Skagen mostly were landscapes, as well aspaintings of his family, friends and garden. Portrait of Tuxen and his 2nd wife Frederikke, in the garden of their house in Skagen. Painted by Julius Paulsen, 1907 #lauritstuxen#tuxen#juliuspaulsen
'The drowned boy is brought ashore' by Laurits Tuxen, 1913. This painting was the last work that Laurits Tuxen exhibited at the Salon in Paris. The theme of the drowning at sea is best known in the works of the Skagen painters in Michael Ancher’s painting 'The drowned' from 1896. But Ancher’s dark interior has been replaced with open air, sunshine, and vibrant colours. Tuxen took a photograph of the three fishermen to help create the motif. He also made many sketches and modelled several small figure groups, so that he would not need live models to paint from all the time. The three men who modelled for him were each given money and a photograph of the painting as thanks. Tuxen kept the painting until 1926, when he donated it to Skagens Museum. #lauritstuxen#tuxen#skagensmuseum
This is a book a friend of mine wrote 📖 @maloutuxen. It is a Danish book. 'Jeg ser mig selv som rytmisk' er en humoristisk og piv ærlig fortælling om en moderne kvindes liv, uden at vige for det grimme og virkelige. En bog for enhver kvinde og mand! Den kan findes i diverse bogbutikker.
Derudover ser jeg også mig selv som rytmisk 🎼
My heart is so full! The love I have for Kaiser is a feeling I never knew possible! & Seeing Paul with Kaiser I have found a whole new level of love for him! I am loving this journey so far, especially because I am doing it with my best friend who supports me and our family 100%! 👪🐶 #JonesFamily#Kaiser#Tuxen#happiness
