With the exhibition on The Golden Age of Danish Painting, SMK – the national gallery of Denmark presents the largest exhibition ever staged about the Golden Age of Danish art.

Here, visitors can explore one of the best-loved periods of Danish painting in a display featuring more than 200 paintings and drawings from the period 1807 to 1864.

More than forty of the greatest artists of the period, such as Christen Købke, C.W. Eckersberg, Elisabeth Jerichau-Baumann,Constantin Hansen, J.Th. Lundbye, Wilhelm Bendz, Wilhelm Marstrand, Martinus Rørbye and P.C. Skovgaard are presented alongside lesser-known artists.

With this show, SMK relates the story of how one of the most creative periods in Danish arts and culture arose, and how the artists of the Golden Age created the enduring image of Denmark and the Danish landscape that we have known and celebrated ever since.

The exhibition is produced in collaboration with Nationalmuseum Stockholm and Petit Palais in Paris.
