The Artwork at Danes Hall of Waupaca: The Skagen Painter of Denmark

Dr. Michael G. Koehler is a chemist by day, but his passion for the history of Danish American immigrants is seen in his restoration of Danes Hall of Waupaca. Danes Hall was built in 1894 at a time when Denmark was undergoing dramatic social and political change, and Danish immigration to Wisconsin was peaking. Denmark’s artist of this era reflected this social and political changes of Europe as they moved away from the realistic paintings of grand estates, castles, and noblemen, to adopt the French impressionist forms of rural landscapes, seascapes, and the working farmers and fishermen. Danes Hall holds a historic collection of paintings from Denmark’s Skagen Painters, representing the impressionist era of the art and culture of the Danes who settled in Wisconsin. During this presentation, you will walk through Danes Hall and enjoy a discussion of the artists, the paintings, and the culture of 19th century Danes.
