Viggo Johansen (1851-1935) was a Danish painter and active member of the group of Skagen Painters who met every summer in the north of Jutland. He was one of Denmark's most prominent painters in the 1890s. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and first became associated with the Skagen Painters in 1875, encouraged by his fellow students Karl Madsen and Michael Ancher. From 1888 to 1906, he taught at the Artists Academy's School for Women. He then became a professor there until 1920 and, for a time, was one of its directors.
