Moe, Andreas (1877-1952)

Andreas Moe was a Danish painter of impressionistic landscapes. Inspired by his teacher, Johan Rohde, his works are often imbued with a gentle radiance and free, expressive brushwork. Bathed in the light of mid-Summer, the Danish coast is enlivened by his hand. While sheep graze in open pasture before tranquil lakes and distant uplands.

But aside from his light-filled vistas, Moe also painted townscapes and winter scenes. These often exhibit a harder line, bolder palette and edgier spirit. Looking back across his oeuvre, he was clearly a painter that captured a mood, often his own.

He trained at PS Krøyer’s Kunstnernes Frie Studieskoler probably under Johan Rohde and later at the Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. He exhibited at the Charlottenburg Spring exhibitions and the Artists' Association.
