Otto Bache (21 August 1839 – 28 June 1927) was a Danish painter. Many of his pictures depict key events in Danish history.

Biography[edit]

Bache was born on 21 August 1839. Only 10 years old, on a dispensation, he was admitted into the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, from 1854 studying under Wilhelm Marstrand.[1] He received early recognition as a portrait painter but he also showed great interest in painting animal motifs, gradually also turning to genre works and history painting.[1]

In 1866, he received the Academy's large Travel Grant and went to Paris and later to Italy. Particularly his stay in Paris had a deep impact on his work, turning it in a direction characterized by more freedom, more colour, stronger light, and broader scope.[1]
