    After spending his student years in Paris and Rome, Eckersberg returned to his native land, where, as a professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, he earned the epithet "father of Danish painting." Eckersberg produced portraits throughout his career, but his serene maritime views reflect his Neoclassical training most lucidly.
