New special exhibition: From Philipsen to Salto – the Collection of Danish Early Modern Art revisited

On May 24, the museum will open a new special exhibition featuring C.L. David’s collection of early Danish modern art.

The museum’s founder, C.L. David, became a very multifaceted art collector. When he died in 1960, he left behind not only a rich collection of early fine and decorative art from Europe and parts of the world of Islam, but also a large collection of Danish paintings, sculptures, and ceramics by artists of his own day. It is a selection from this “modern” part of the collection that is reexhibited here.
