Tales from Denmark
28.09.2007 - 27.01.2008


Ateneum's main exhibition in autumn 2007 presents Danish art from its Golden Age in the early 19th century up until the turn of the next century. Landscapes from Italy and Denmark, as well as scenes from everyday life with family and friends are all featured in the paintings. The exhibition shows works by Denmark's most important artists, such as C.W. Eckersberg, Christen Købke, Constantin Hansen, P.C. Skovgaard, Vilhelm Hammershøi, and L.A. Ring.

The exhibition also celebrates the collection of Danish 19th-century art donated to Ateneum by ship owner H.B. Tobiesen in 1953. Most of the works in the exhibition are on loan from Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen. There will also be paintings from the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm as well as private collections. All in all the exhibition will show some 90 works of art.
