The Collections

Danish Early Modern Art

The Collection of Danish Early Modern Art consists of a fairly small group of paintings, sculptures, and ceramics made by Danish artists between c. 1880 and 1950. It includes work by Theodor Philipsen, Jens Ferdinand Willumsen, L. A. Ring, and Peter Hansen as well as 14 paintings by Vilhelm Hammershøi. In contrast to the museum’s other two collections, nearly all its works of art were acquired by C. L. David himself.

At this time, 11 works by Hammershøi are displayed on the 2nd floor.
