Danish artist Carl Frederik Ågaard (1833-1895) is a famous decorative artist, engraver and painter, primarily a landscape painter. He received his artistic education at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen, where he studied from 1852 in the studio of decorative artist Georg Christian Hilker and with his older brother, woodcarver and engraver Johann Peter Ogaard. After graduating from the Academy, he began to study painting at the private school of Peter Christian Skogård. From 1857 to 1896, Aagård's works were regularly shown at academic exhibitions at Charlottenborg Palace in Copenhagen, where they were awarded the Neuhausen Prize (1857) and the Cedrig Prize (1865). In 1874, Ogaard was elected a member of the Academy of Arts, and since 1892 he has been a professor at the Academy.

Carl Ågaard's paintings are held in various museum collections in Denmark and Sweden, including the collections of the State Museum of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, the Aarhus Art Museum, the Roskilde Museum, the Funen Museum, the Reykjavik Museum, the National Museum in Stockholm, as well as in museums Maribu and Aalborg.
