At the old Dining Room from Brøndums Hotel... The echoes of the past times' conversations, discussions, laughter, and exclamations are still present in the room as if caught by the oil paint, varnish, and the wooden panels.
Since the 1870s the group of artists and intellectuals frequented Brøndums Hotel occupying the Dining Rooms throughout the day and evenings. When the hotel had an extension in 1892, a new Dining Room was designed by architects Plesner & Bindesbøll (who in general has had so much influence in the architure here) and the many portraits of and by the local artists - bestowed over the past two decades to the hotel owner Degn Brøndum - where embedded in the panelling.
The Dining Room was dismounted and moved to Skagens Art Museum in 1946.
Swipe once to see the 1883 painting by P.S.Krøyer depicting a typical luncheon in the Dining Room of Brøndums Hotel. I would love to have been part of this meeting!
Swipe twice for Brøndums Hotel as it appears today; on yet another lovely Summer's Day.
