Danish Art 1780-1930


The exhibition will feature an extensive selection of the Glyptotek’s outstanding collection of Danish art, which includes paintings, sculptures and drawings by such artists as Eckersberg, Martinus Rørbye, J.A. Jerichau, H.W. Bissen, Jens Juel, J. Th. Lundbye, Christen Købke, P.C. Skovgaard, P.S. Krøyer, Theodor Philipsen, Astrid Noack, Edvard Weie, Karl Isakson, Vilhelm Hammershøi etc.

For quite some time now, the collection has not been available to the public. The new hanging will give visitors the opportunity to revisit a number of major Danish works, providing  them with insight into key themes in art during this period. The exhibition will reveal the mutual influence between Danish and international art, the perception of landscape and nature, the fascination of artists with antiquity and the constantly-evolving artistic ideals, all unified by the story of the exceptional art collection, which Carl Jacobsen started in the late 19th century.
