Description

Masterpieces of nineteenth-century French painting from the Ordrupgaard Collection are travelling from Denmark to the Royal Academy of Arts in the spring of 2020. Drawn from the remarkable collection of the Swedish insurance broker and art lover Wilhelm Hansen, these works represent the very best of French painting. Joining an already impressive collection of Scandinavian art, one of the first French paintings Hansen acquired was Woman with a Fan (1874) by Berthe Morisot. This gently ironic work set the tone for his perceptive and adventurous collecting style. A burst of acquisitions from 1916 to 1918, during which Hansen took advice from the influential critic Theodore Duret, saw his collection grow to include works by Manet, Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Sisley, Courbet, Matisse and Gauguin. With stunning reproductions of over 50 works, this book includes in-depth analysis of key paintings by expert authors. Exhibition organised by the Ordrupgaard Collection, Copenhagen, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Accompanies an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, 29 March-14 June 2020. SELLING POINTS: The Ordrupgaard Collection includes masterpieces of French painting, including works by Monet, Morisot, Renoir, Cezanne and Gauguin Accompanies an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London 100 colour images
