The collections take visitors on a journey through 700 years of art and art history. Art ranging from the early Renaissance to the cutting-edge contemporary can be viewed in new displays at the Gallery.
The new displays offer a chronological overview, themed areas for in-depth contemplation, and angles of approach that put forward new perspectives and make the works on display immediately relevant today.
From the birth of Danish painting, to the famous painters of the Golden Age, through to the dawn of modernism. We present the museum's large collection of Danish and Nordic art in a new display, where 150 years of art unfolds.
Modern art from the 20th century and the very latest contemporary art fills the exhibition rooms of the Gallery’s white building, offering a wide-ranging display of the main movements within Danish art.
The collection includes some of the museum's most famous works by artists including Picasso, Braque, Derain and Matisse. Now presented in a new display that is based on the art scene in Paris in the early 1900s.
The collection contains consists of drawings, watercolors, etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, photographs and other forms of art on paper. The more than 240,000 works, from 1400s to modern day, are exhibited infrequently since they are very light sensitive.
The collection of copies of sculptural masterpieces from antiquity to the Renaissance was created to show how the development of the human form in art embodied the spirit of European humanism, striving for freedom, democracy, and beauty.
