Original works of art

Simon Ludwig Ditlev Simonsen
(Danish, 1841 -1928 )

Simon Simonsen was a noted nineteenth century Danish artist. Although he completed many portraits of people, he is mostly known as primarily a painter of animals, and in particular, dogs and horses.

Born in Munich on January 19, 1841, he was a student of his father the painter Niels S. Simonsen, as well as studying at the Academy in Copenhagen. He later studied at Chevreuse with the well-known French artist, August Bonheur.

Simonsen is well represented in Danish museums, although his work is quite rare in North America. The artist died in Copenhagen on February 27, 1928.
