Anders Andersen-Lundby grew up in a poor smallholder’s home in Lundby near Aalborg and came early to serve. He attracted attention, however, with his talent for drawing, and with private means he moved to Copenhagen at the age of 20, where he was self-taught. He exhibited and achieved great popularity with his genre pictures, and especially with his winter landscapes from both Denmark and southern Germany, usually with newly fallen snow or thaw. He settled in Munich and became influenced by German painting.
