The Garden Steps Leading to the Artist's Studio on Blegdammen

c. 1845
Oil on canvas, 23 x 33 cm
Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen

The artist's father died in 1843, and after a few years it turned out that the family had to move out of their home on Blegdammen, which at the time lay outside of Copenhagen. This prompted a desire to capture the scenes that had been part of his everyday life since the family moved there in 1833.
