Jerichau was educated in Germany and Italy during his youth and studied art with his mother Elisabeth Jerichau Baumann. Jerichau also attended the School of Kr. Zahrtmann from 1886-1887. Jerichau worked and traveled all around the world. Due to Jerichau’s noble background he had the opportunity to visit and work in many exotic countries like Russia, Egypt and India from 1893. He later traveled to Italy where he lived from 1886-1888. Jerichau worked primarily with impressionistic landscapes and was very fond of the colors of winter and spring. Jerichau worked in Denmark during his youth and exhibited a series of impressionistic Landscapes. The landscapes caught the attention of the Russian Royal family who later also helped him finance his many exotic travels. The critics of the time called Jerichau a true visionary and a talented artist, and his paintings were popular and frequently exhibited. Jerichau died from an illness at the age of 41.
