Constantin Hansen Paintings in GeoCodedArt

Constantin Hansen (1804-1880) painted vivid scenes of what he saw in Italy, and seemed particularly attracted to atmosphere that differed from his native Scandinavia (though he also captured scenes in the company of his countrymen).
His paintings of locations, especially ancient monuments, are marked by a lack of human involvement in the scenes; his interest seemed to be strictly in the elegance of the lines, and how they contrasted with the ill-defined edges of natural materials.
