THE BRANDT-ERICHSEN FAMILY
VIGGO BRANDT-ERICHSEN (1896-1955), a Danish-American artist and sculptor, built Elverhøj as his dream home and studio — almost single-handedly over a period of four years.
Viggo said of Solvang:
MARTHA MOTT (“PATT”) BRANDT-ERICHSEN (1906-1983), an accomplished painter and art teacher shown here doing a portrait of her son David, donated Elverhøj to the community to be used as a museum to promote the arts and the Danish heritage of Solvang.
