I know little about Danish art. Even from the 1850-1930 period that interests me most across all nations. The most famous circa-1900 Danish painter seems to be Thomsen's contemporary Peder Krøyer. Krøyer painted genrre scenes -- seashore settings, dinner parties and such. Thomsen also did genre, though mostly from a different angle.
Both artists were conservative, making representational images in an era when Modernism was on the rise in France and elsewhere south of the Scandinavian countries. Thomsen was technically skilled, but I find his work rather dull.
But then, perhaps that's what the Danish market expected of him.
A Sunday afternoon gathering. Nice depiction of light and shade.
Thomsen apparently chose to depict the morning after. To my eyes, what we have here is a long-time married couple.
Again, nicely painted, but rather dull. The wildest touch is the position of the lady's left leg.
A rather fragmented grouping.
Thomsen's daughter. She doesn't seem pretty, and the pose and lighting might be an attempt to hide that.
A fairly late work. Not as smoothly painted as the 1890s scenes for some reason.
An etching of "Mother Denmark."
