Fanø Art Museum was established in 1992 in Soenderho in a listed building from 1868 which was originally grocery store and ship chandler. The basis of Fano Art Museum, was created by the local artist Ruth Heinemann, who in the 1950s began collecting paintings dating back to the 1850s. From the mid 1800s many artists left Copenhagen in searched of the distinctive Danish, in accordance with national romantic currents. The love of the fatherland was important after the loss of Norway, a national bankruptcy, the Schleswig wars and the loss of Suthern Jutland to Prussia in 1864. Most of the artists didn't live on the island, but but only stayed for a time and, with the exception of Julius Exner (1825-1910) they were particularly concerned with maritime motifs. Later a more permanent colony of artists established itself , and today Fanø Art Museum holds more than 1100 paintings, with relation to Fanø by subject or artist. The museum's purpose is to convey visual arts associated with the island and the region, and the collection spans from the 1800s romantic depictions of life on Fanø, to the works of contemporary artists.
