Precise and refined, more than 200 works by the leading artists of the time, like Christoffer Eckersberg, Christen Købke, Martinus Rørbye and Constantin Hansen, offer an immersive view of Denmark in the 19th century. The fruit of recent research by an international team, the exhibition is designed to shed new light on a remarkable period of artistic output.
The exhibition was organised in collaboration with the Statens Museum for Kunst (SMK) in Copenhagen and the Nationalmuseum of Stockholm.
