The Ordrupgaard Collection outside Copenhagen reads like a 19th-century roll-call of Impressionist masters who reshaped Western art. It was assembled by a wealthy Danish couple with the help of an early champion of Impressionism and French writer, Théodore Duret.

This exhibition is a unique opportunity to view the Ordrupgaard Collection’s treasure trove of Impressionist works, from Monet and Degas, to pre-Impressionist artists like Corot and Courbet, as well as artists associated with the Barbizon School such as Dupre and Daubigny.

The exhibition closes with a stunning series of Post-Impressionist works by Paul Gauguin that span his career, from Impressionist-inspired paintings to the highly personal use of colour, symbolism and simplified forms that he became known for.

Exhibition organised by Ordrupgaard, Copenhagen and the Royal Academy of Arts.
