Entire name: Georg Vilhelm Arnold Groth.

Born on Mar. 9th in Copenhagen, Denmark.

After attending the F.F. Helsted School of Drawing and later took lessons from C.V. Nielsen he was admitted to The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (Copenhagen) in 1861 and graduated from there in 1866. Later, in 1871-72 he attended The Vilh. Kyhn Garden Atelier.

He made several study tours abroad, starting in Stockholm in 1871. He went to Italy several times in the 1870’s but his study tours to Paris (1872-73, 1875-76 and 1877-78) made the largest impression on him.

He debuted at the esteemed Charlottenborg Spring Exhibitions in 1866 and exhibited there continuously henceforth. Apart from exhibiting at other prominent Danish exhibitions he also exhibited at The World Exhibitions (Paris) in 1876.
