Anders Andersen-Lundby grew up in an impoverished home in Arhus, Denmark. At an early age Anders showed a true love and talent for art. After serving in the Danish military at age 18, he decided to move to Copenhagen where, with the help and support of his parents, he was able to further his studies and career.
At the young age of 20 his skills had developed to the point of gaining much notice and respect in the Copenhagen art circles. He eventually became very popular and started exhibiting throughout Europe. He is best known for his genre paintings and poignant winter landscape paintings from Denmark and southern Germany.
