She was one of the few women at the time who gained recognition as a painter. In 1827, the two sisters began to exhibit at Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition. From 1831 to 1834, Christine was one of Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg"s students.
The lessons were held on Sundays, probably because it was not possible for the professor to include her in his classes with male students.
Christine Løvmand was one of the few female painters during the Danish Golden Age. Her favorite subjects were flowers and fruits.
The first official recognition she received came in 1827 when the Royal Collection first purchased one of her paintings. In 1842, she received a stipend from King Christian VIII which allowed her to study in Germany.
In 1846, she was able to pay for a short study trip to Paris herself.
She admitted that the study trips widened her understanding of art but had little effect on her own painting as nearly all her time was taken up with teaching. Foreign an extended period she instructed young women in painting in her own home.
