Arnold Krog (b.1856 - 1931) was a Danish architect, designer, and painter who studied Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Krog was the Artistic Director of the famous porcelain company, Royal Cpenhagen, from 1884 to 1916, and was responsible for helping revive the company after a period of stagnation and decline. Krog shifted Royal Copenhagen’s neoclassical style to a more impressionistic style, inspired by Japanese imagery and European naturalism. He is also known for designing the Polar Bear Fountain for the Peace Palace in the Netherlands, as well as silverware, furniture, and bookbinding for Anton Michaelsen. Krog’s artistic capabilities didn’t stop there however; after his retirement, he took on landscape painting.
