Christian Krohg (1852-1925 ) was a Norwegian naturalist painter, illustrator, author and journalist.Krohg was educated in Germany at the Baden School of Art in Karlsruhe under Hans Gude, and later worked in Paris from 1881 to 1882. Inspired by the thoughts of the realists he chose motives primarily from everyday life - often its darker or socially inferior sides. Particularly well known are his pictures of prostitutes, and his novel Albertine from 1886 is about this theme.   more from wikipedia »
