Ordrupgaard, a Danish Art Museum
Outside of Copenhagen, we have an excellent art museum called Ordrupgaard. It was initially a private home for an art collector and now a private art collection. The art is French Impressionism and Danish Golden Age art. The museum is undergoing reconstruction, and the art is out on travels to other museums. The French paintings are travelling abroad, and the Danish art came to our neighbourhood, a town called Holstebro. The name of the exhibition is called “100 Years of Ordrupgaard.”
Here a link to Wilhelm Hansen, the founder of the collection.
I would like to show you some examples of the art.
Theodor Philipsen is regarded as a Danish impressionist.
In his time Peter Hansen’s art was considered ugly as his children were painted in a realistic way. He lived from 1868-1928.
A French artist Armand Guellaumin, 1841-1927 was among the Danish paintings
Johannes Larsen 1867-1961, has his own museum in his former home in Funen. He painted birds and nature.
Wilhelm Hammershøj’s painting of the doors was put in a box of glass, so I had to use a photo from the museum. Wilhelm Hammershøj, 1864-1916.
