For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result. Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen, who amassed a remarkable collection housed at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen.
From Denmark to Paris, this film presents some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected. Denmark’s Ordrupgaard Collection is a treasure trove featuring paintings by Corot, Delacroix and Courbet; landscapes of Monet, Pissarro, Cézanne and Sisley; and beautifully observed portraits by Degas, Manet, Morisot, and Gonzalès.
Please note: The Kate requires face coverings at all events.
