"Village Pond" oil on canvas 15 1/2" x 20 3/4" unframed Langer was born on Dec. 11th 1860 in Leipzig, Germany. After becoming a journey painter he was admitted to The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (Copenhagen, Denmark) in 1877 after studying under W. Kyhn and Sigurd Konstantin-Hansen. He graduated from there in 1886. He made study tours to Italy (1886), Paris (1893), The Balkans (1920) and Sweden (1920) and several other places, and received the Raben-Levetzau scholarship in 1894. Langer, among others, exhibited at The Charlottenborg Exhibitions (Copenhagen, Denmark) in 1882-1943, The Nordic Exhibitions (1883) and The Artists Fall Exhibitions (1907-1909). Viggo Langer was mainly a landscape painter but in his later years he was especially devoted to motifs from the famous Danish park Dyrehaven (The Royal Deer Garden) north of Copenhagen. His art has become increasingly popular over the past few years and highly collectable.
