Vilhelm Jacob Rosenstand (July 31, 1838 – March 11, 1915) was a Danish painter and illustrator renowned for his contributions to the arts. His most celebrated masterpiece adorns the walls of the banqueting hall at the University of Copenhagen.

Born in Copenhagen, Rosenstand commenced his artistic journey at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1858 under the tutelage of Wilhelm Marstrand, supplemented by private instruction. Seeking further refinement, he ventured to Léon Bonnat's esteemed school in Paris from 1881 to 1882. Rosenstand's debut exhibition at Charlottenborg in 1861 showcased "Genrebillede fra Vendsyssel" before he served as a lieutenant in the Second Schleswig War in 1864, experiences echoed in poignant works like "Fra Saxarmen ved Dannevirke. Morgen efter Bustrup-Fægtningen," earning him the prestigious Neuhausen Prize in 1865.

In 1869, sponsored by the Academy, Rosenstand embarked on a transformative journey to Rome, where he immersed himself in artistic pursuits for several years. His prowess garnered recognition at the 1873 World Exhibition in Vienna for "En Campagnuol og hans Hustru." Italy became a fertile ground for Rosenstand's genre works, including "Ved Kirkedøren" (1876), "En Landsbyfrisør" (1878), and "Forlegenhed" (1880). Relocating to Paris in 1881, he captured everyday scenes with finesse, exemplified in "Udenfor et Brasserie i Paris. Moder og Søn ved Pousse-Caféen" (1882), earning him the esteemed Thorvaldsen Medal. Despite the shift towards Realism upon his return to Denmark in 1883, Rosenstand's legacy endured. His mural depicting the defense of Copenhagen during the 1659 Swedish assault (1889–90) and his depiction of Ludvig Holberg directing a rehearsal of "Erasmus Montanus" (1892) showcased his enduring relevance.

Rosenstand epitomizes the quintessential Danish artist of the latter half of the 19th century, though he remained overshadowed by contemporaries like Otto Bache and Carl Bloch. His oeuvre encompasses genre works from Denmark and Southern Europe, portraits of luminaries, scenes from Danish literary history, and pivotal moments in Danish history. Additionally, his adeptness as an illustrator further solidifies his artistic prowess.
