Dead Man’s Hill. Vilhelm Kyhn and Skagen

Corner Display

7 October 2020 – 10 January 2021

An unexpected scene emerged amidst the barren dunes when conservation work was recently undertaken on Vilhelm Kyhn’s (1819–1903) painting Dunes of Skagen from 1845. Underneath a coat of paint that had been added after the artist’s own lifetime, a burial scene revealed itself by the foot of the tall dunes. In this autumn’s Corner Display, we delve into the hidden motifs of the painting and look at the work through the keenly investigative gaze of the art historian and conservator.
