This private guided tour will guide you through the Golden Age of Danish painting.
The first half of the 19th century was a powerhouse period in Danish art. Though Carlsberg brewer Carl Jacobsen had a particular fondness to ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, he did also collect Danish 19th century painting and sculptures.
After a general introduction to his philosophy of collecting, we tour the very thematically ordered collection of the Danish Golden Age painters and a few of the sculptors too.
The 1800s were a century of considerable changes in the Danish society, and these changes are highly reflected in this collection.
