Danish artist Carl Bloch was one of the most celebrated Danish artists of the 19th century. The museum is pleased to own a few of Bloch’s paintings, rarely found outside of his native country. During the final decade of his career, Bloch took up printmaking, crafting masterful etchings of everyday moments, the Danish countryside, and meaningful episodes from the life of Jesus Christ.
