"Marie Krøyer – It Takes Courage to Have Talent"
Marie Krøyer – It Takes Courage to Have Talent - exhibition at Skagens Museum
18 September 2012 – 1 September 2013
“It takes courage to have talent” – this is what painter and friend Agnes Slott-Møller wrote in one of her letters to the young Marie Triepcke to make her believe more in herself and her abilities.
Marie's life appears fascinating to many people. Along with P. S. Krøyer, she belonged to the cultural elite of Copenhagen, and contemporary newspapers and magazines frequently wrote about the celebrity couple.
However, Marie was more than just a beautiful woman; she was also one of the front-line fighters in connection with Danish women's possibilities of training as artists on an equal footing with men. She was also a woman with a burning desire to fulfil herself and have a career as an artist. She did not succeed in this aspiration, as she more or less gave up painting when she married P. S. Krøyer in 1889. Instead, she began to take an interest in interior decoration and design, although she never exhibited the items that she made, and she never had an artistic breakthrough.
Following P. S. Krøyer's death in 1909, silence settled around Marie's person, and it is only in recent years that she has become known and recognised for her works, and not least for her interior decoration and design.
With this little exhibition, Skagen's Museum directs focus at Marie Krøyer by showing the collection of paintings and design by the artist that belongs to the Museum, along with a number of the many paintings that P. S. Krøyer painted of his beautiful wife and from their life together. The exhibition also includes two portraits of Marie painted by Michael Ancher in 1889, which have never previously been exhibited together.
