RORBYE Martinus (b. 1803, Drammen, d. 1848, Kbenhavn) Nationality : Danish

Danish painter. His father was a civil servant in Norway, but the family had to leave the country after Norway's separation from Denmark in 1814. He began his studies at the Kunstakademi in Copenhagen in 1820. A student there for over ten years, he failed to win the major gold medal in spite of repeated attempts. His teacher was Christian August Lorentzen (1746-1828), but Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg also gave him private painting lessons. Even as a student Rorbye enjoyed some success, selling genre scenes to the royal family and portraits set in interiors to the middle classes of Copenhagen.
