Fischer, Paul Gustav

Paul Gustav Fischer belongs to the fourth generation of Fischers to live in Denmark, this Jewish family had come from Poland. The family was upper-middle class, Paul's father had started as a painter, but later started and became successful in manufacturing paints and lacquers.

His parents sent him for two years to the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen when he was in his mid-teens. Paul Gustav Fischer began to paint when he was still young, guided by his father. It was thanks to a painting of his that was published in a magazine that his reputation began to evolve as he came in contact with young Danish naturalist artists. His earlier paintings depict city life and after a four-year stay in Paris from 1891– to 1895, his color pallet became richer and lighter and a new subject matter was added. It was not long before Fischer gained fame as a cityscape painter but also landscapes from Scandinavia, Italy, and Germany, reaching his pinnacle between 1890 and 1910.

He benefited from contemporaries in Norway and Sweden, especially Carl Larsson. Around this time, he also started to paint bright, sunny bathing scenes, some with nude women and developed an interest in poster art, inspired by Théophile Steinlen and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Fisher's paintings sold well during his lifetime but he never received any recognition from art critics.

During the period when he painted, Danish art was dominated by Laurits Tuxen. One major event in which he succeeded over Tuxen was when Sweden transferred the sovereignty of Norway back to the Norwegians, Paul Gustav Fischer instead of Tuxen got the commission from the King of Norway to paint this historic event, Norwegian delegation 20 November 1905 at Amalienborg.
