Viggo Langer was born in Reudnitz, near Leipzig, Germany in 1860 to Danish and German parents.

He was a student of Vilhelm Kyhn, and Sigurd Konstantin-Hansen at the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen 1877-86, and the renowned Danish artist Carl Bloch 1884-85.

Langer was a master of light and colour, and known for his beautifully executed Impressionistic landscapes and atmospheric paintings not only influenced by early Impressionists, but golden age artists like Vilhelm Kyhn and J. T. Lyndbye.

He was a member of the Royal Academy of Art, and appointed painter to the Danish court. Many of his paintings depicted the striking Royal Forests north of Copenhagen, which were later exhibited throughout Europe and numerous national magazines. Also known for his sunset forest scenes and of Denmark’s capital island of Sjælland.

Langer was also an educated concert singer performing throughout the 1890’s at the King’s Royal Theatre (Dagmarteatret in Copenhagen).
