Holsoe, Carl Vilhelm

Carl Vilhelm Holsoe is a very much respected artist of the Danish school. He painted landscapes, genre scenes, and interiors. At first a student at the Academy in Copenhagen from 1882 to 1884, he later studied under the Danish master Peder Severin Kroyer, the master of light and figures. The famed Hammershoi also had a profound impact on Holsoe's art, as did the paintings of Johannes Vermeer.

In 1888, Carl Vilhelm Holsoe exhibited for the first time at Charlottenborg, a well-known and respected art gallery in Copenhagen, and began receiving the first of several traveling grants from the Academy. Winning an honorable mention for his work at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889, he was also awarded a medal in Munich in 1891. He showed his canvases at a variety of locales, including a 1904 exhibition in Dusseldorf, a 1907 show in Berlin, and London in 1907. He participated in many events in Munich.

Carl Vilhelm Holsoe's interiors are painted with quick and virtuoso brushwork and sure sense of power. On his deathbed, he married a popular model he used in the high-ceilinged, stylish lounges he depicted. Carl Vilhelm Holsoe canvases have constantly called for aggressive prices at auction, and continue to be highly coveted by collectors in both the public and private sectors.
