The Danish painter, Carl Heinrich Bloch, was born on May 23, 1834, in
Copenhagen, Denmark. He was the son of merchant Joergen Peter
Bloch and Ida Emilie Ulrikke Henriette Weitzmann Bloch. Counter
to his parent's wishes, he became a painter rather than an officer in
the Danish Navy.
In January 1849, he began study at the Royal Danish Academy of
Art. In 1852, he was awarded a small silver medal for one of his
drawings, which was exhibited the following year at the Academy.
In 1855, Bloch joined the Royal Danish Academy of Art, where on August
1, 1859 he received a travel grant, which he used to study in Holland,
France and Italy with his best friend and fellow artist, Anton Dorph.
