Portrait of Pietro and Mario Krohn1894 by Albert Edelfelt

Pietro Købke Krohn (23 January 1840 – 15 October 1905) was a Danish painter, illustrator, theatre director and museum director. He is remembered above all for illustratiing his brother Johan Krohn's Peters Jul together with Otto Haslund.

Krohn worked mainly as an illustrator of books including Peters Jul (1866) and I Skoven skulde være Gilde (1870). Despite further attempts to improve his painting, for example in Paris in 1978, he became more generally interested in all forms of art. From 1880 to 1893, he became a costume designed at the Royal Danish Theatre where he also directed operas. He was artistic director of the porcelain factory Bing & Grøndahl from 1895 to 1892 and, from 1893 until his death, head of the Danish Museum of Art & Design.
