Niels Frederik Schiøttz-Jensen had a skill for romanticising everyday fleeting moments that would otherwise pass us by. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen and later in Paris at the Académie Colarossi. His work was widely exhibited during his lifetime and he was awarded the Academy Art Prize twice along with the first-class annual medal in 1895.
