Peder Kroyer (1851-1909) was one of the most notable members of the Danish artistic community known as the Skagen Painters. His works often emphasise the special effects of the Skagen light, with several memorable works depicting beach scenes, and this painting is amongst his masterpieces.
Krøyer's style was influenced by the Impressionist movement during his travels to France, although he developed a style of his own. In Denmark he gained a reputation particularly for his beach scenes, for his paintings of the fishermen, and lively gatherings of the artists.
