For the last century and a half, the port of Skagen on the northern-most tip of the Jutland peninsular has been home to an artists' colony. It started life in the mid-19th Century when art student Michael Ankerset up shop there and was quickly followed by a swarm of painters. Skagen's museum houses more than 1,700 works by the "Skagen School's" most important representatives.
