Two from Fritz Syberg

Christian Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Syberg (who generally went by Fritz Syberg, obviously for good reason) was a Danish painter and member of the Fynboerne group of painters, whose work generally hovers somewhere between Realism and Impressionism but was certainly a rejection of the academic style then prevalent. The first image fits in the bare beach bathing tradition we’ve covered before (see here, here and here).
