Paul Gustave Fischer

Paul Gustave Fischer (July 22, 1860, CopenhagenMay 11934 Gentofte) was a Danish painter.

Paul Fischer belongs to the fourth generation of Fischers to live in Denmark. This Jewish family originally came from Poland. The family was upper middle class; Paul's father had started as a painter, but later succeeded in the business of manufacturing paints and lacquers.

His formal art education lasted only a short time in his middle teens. For two years he attended The Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen.

During the period when he actively painted, Danish art was dominated by Laurits Tuxen. Despite Fischer's lack of critical recognition during his lifetime, his art sold well. One major event in which he succeeded over Tuxen was when Denmark transferred the sovereignty of Norway back to the Norwegians - Fischer rather than Tuxen got the commission from the King of Norway to paint the event.
