The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin (PG)
11 December 2021
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. But before long, a new breed of collectors were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists. It was an extraordinary moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue, and subterfuge.
Exhibition on Screen tells the fascinating story of Danish collector Wilhelm Hansen and takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected.
