F.c. Kiærskou selected early to train for landscape painter and was a student of Eckersberg, and J.L. Lund at the Academy of fine arts. The greatest influence of the Lad got promoted German-romantic landscape tradition that coloristic and kompositionelt had roots in Dutch 1600-century painting, and throughout his life remained the Foundation of Kiærschous landscape view. As l. Gurlitt and Th. Brendstrup represented Kiærschou an international landscape painting, which, on the basis of, among other things. Ruisdael and J.C. Dahl featured dramatic landscapes and grandiose nature, whether the motives were Danish or as often the Swiss Alps. Unwillingness to assimilate the Eckersberg school pre-naturalistic landskabssyn has given Kiærschou a peripheral location in the 1800-century Danish landscape art on a par with other artists, who maintained a romantic-idealistic vision of art.
