The special exhibition about Denmark’s most important female sculptor, Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen (1863 – 1945) opened on Saturday 19 March 2022 at Ribe Art Museum.
In the exhibition visitors are invited into the artist’s studio, where they can get to know an uncompromising artist who, though in great demand and highly acclaimed in her lifetime, was subsequently omitted from history.
At the tender age of 12, Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen began modelling small animal figurines in butter and clay. Later in life, Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen became the first female sculptor in the world to be commissioned to create an equestrian statue of a king and bronze gates for a cathedral – two of the profession’s most prestigious assignments.
The exhibition is on display at Ribe Art Museum from 19 March – 28 August 2022. Read more here.
After being shown in Ribe, the exhibition travels to Fuglsang Art Museum, where it is on display from 23 September – 8 January.
The exhibition is curated by Emilie Boe Bierlich and generously supported by Carl Nielsens and Anne Marie Carl-Nielsens Legat.
ANNE MARIE CARL-NIELSEN was shown at the Glyptotek from October 2021 to February 2022. Read about the exhibition at the Glyptotek here.
