Years ago, my interest in WWII and my love for Copenhagen, our Danish capital, brought me in contact with the artist Simon Bang. At the time, I didn’t know that Simon Bang was a painter as we corresponded about historical subjects on a Facebook group on old black and white photos from our capital.

In Glyptoteket, you have the beauty of architecture and Carl Jacobsen's valuable art collection from ancient times until his contemporary time.

The first time we were visiting San Fransisco, we had a tendency to walk right to Tenderloin each time we were trying to go anywhere. It’s an area where you don’t go after sunset. The […]
The Skovgaard Family Some families seem to be able to produce so much talent in generations. One of those families is the Skovgaard family. In Viborg Cathedral, you can see frescos made by Joakim Skovgaard (1856-1933). The decoration in the church is one of the hugest church works in Denmark.
