Peder Knudsen, 1868 - 1944, 7 pieces in Museums and Notable Collections.
After leaving the Royal Academy of Art, Knudsen traveled and studied abroad, a good portion of time in Paris. He attended the Leon Bonnat Art Academy in Paris, and exhibited at several shows. He moved to Finland in 1902 where he was influenced by Alex Gallen-Kalelas, a pioneering artist in the Symbolist School of Nordic Landscaping Painting. He exhibited at several shows while in Helsinki. After moving back to Denmark in 1918 he enjoyed numerous Exhibitions over the next 25 years. Perhaps not surprising, his motifs were often were from the Island of Bornholm, a land similar to the rugged landscape of Finland.
