Summer at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen offers visitors world-famous classics of art. Friday 15th June 2012 sees the opening of a new display of the Glyptotek’s collection of French painting, which contains Northern Europe’s finest Impressionist collection.
The new arrangement invites one to take a pleasurable stroll through one of the most radical and visionary periods in the history of painting – the years from 1850 up to the beginning of the 20th century.
The Glyptotek holds Scandinavia’s largest collection of French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, which numbers such works as ”Shadows on the Sea” by Claude Monet, "Landscape from Saint-Rémy" by Vincent van Gogh, "Tahitian Woman with a Flower" by Paul Gauguin, "Toilette after the Bath" by Edgar Degas and "The Absinthe Drinker" by Édouard Manet.
Also featured is a selection of works of French sculpture from the same period, most notably the Glyptotek’s collection of sculptures by Edgar Degas – one of only four complete sets in the world.
