Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
He first came to England in 1863 for the Royal Wedding of the Prince of Wales and Princess Alexandria. Although he worked mainly in Denmark and Norway, he spent some time in England where he is believed to have exhibited with many of the leading art galleries in London. In addition to exhibiting in England, Christiansen also exhibited in his home country at the Royal Academy of Copenhagen where he became a member. He seems to have settled in England and on 10 September 1887 he married Alice Dickens at York Square, Stepney and lived in West Ham. His success brought him royal connections and he was given a Grace and Favour apartment at Windsor by Queen Victoria. Christiansen died in 1922 at Plaistow, East London aged 71.
His paintings are always beautifully drawn and with the inclusion of figures give added interest to the viewer. A number of his works can be found in museums and art collections in England including Epping Forest Museum, Warwickshire Museum, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.
The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
