Born in Denmark in 1870 at Frederiksborg Castle Denmark Arild Rosenkrantz was the son of the Danish minister to Italy. He spent most of his life abroad mainly in England, and trained as an artist trained at the Academie Julian in Paris. In 1896 he spent a year in the United States and worked on the memorial window for James Gallatin at The Decorative Stained Glass Company in New York. The window was installed at Wickhambreaux Kent and the first American stained glass window to be exported abroad. Whilst in America he also designed a window for Tiffany on the subject of King Alfred the Great.

 

His main influences were the Pre-Raphaelites, in particular Edward Burne-Jones. Other influences were William Blake and J.M.W. Turner, and Claude Monet.
