Banknotes of Denmark 1000 krone banknote 2006 Anna and Michael Ancher
Danish National Bank - Danmarks Nationalbank

The front of the banknote has a double portrait of artists Anna and Michael Ancher (18 August 1859 to 15 April 1935, and 9 June 1849 to 19 September 1927). The couple are known for their paintings depicting everyday life in the fishing town of Skagen. The portraits featured on the banknote were inspired by two paintings Danish artist Peder Severin Krøyer made in 1884. The paintings were originally hung on the walls in the dining room at Brøndums Hotel in Skagen. The anchor background pattern on the banknote does not directly refer to the artists' surname (anker means anchor in Danish), but to a necklace worn by Anna.

A tournament scene from a sepulchral monument located in Bislev Church in northern Jutland is the inspiration for the motif on the back of the banknote.

Printed by Nationalbanken, Copenhagen (DK)
The 1000-krone banknote in the 1997 series was issued in an upgraded version in November 2004. The motifs are the same as on the previous 1000-krone banknote from 1998.

Michael Peter Ancher (9 June 1849 – 19 September 1927) was a Danish impressionist artist. He is remembered above all for his paintings of fishermen and other scenes from the Danish port of Skagen. He is probably one of Denmark's most popular artists.

Anna Ancher (18 August 1859 – 15 April 1935) was a Danish artist associated with the Skagen Painters, an artists' colony on the northern point of Jutland, Denmark.

Banknotes of Denmark, 1997 series
The 1997 series of banknotes was introduced over a period of two years, from 1997 to 1999. In the years 2002 to 2005 the banknote series was upgraded with two new security features - a hologram and fluorescent colours. In 2006, Danmarks Nationalbank initiated the process to design a new Danish banknote series to replace the existing series.The key motif on the face of each banknote is a portrait of an individual who made a significant contribution to Danish art or science. The motifs on the reverse of the banknotes are inspired by stone reliefs from Danish churches dating from just after the introduction of Christianity.
