1. Three Young Girls (The Artist’s Sisters Alvilde, Ida, and Henriette), 1827. Constantin Hansen (Danish, 1804-1880). Oil on canvas. Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen.

    Hansen was one of the painters associated with the Golden Age of Danish Painting. He was deeply interested in literature and mythology, and inspired by art historian Niels Lauritz Høyen, he tried to recreate a national historical painting based on Norse mythology. He painted also many altarpieces and portraits, including the historical The Constitutional Assembly (Den grundlovgivende Rigsforsamling) between 1861-1865.
