EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: THE DANISH COLLECTOR: DELACR

Genre: Documentary | Rating: CTC

Runtime: 90 Minutes

For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result.


Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen. It was an extraordinary

moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue and subterfuge.Some collectors we may recognise and some we may not, but Hansen amassed a remarkable collection
housed at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Exhibition on Screen tells his fascinating story and, with exclusive access to a sell-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, brings the
extraordinary collection to the big-screen in glorious high-definition.
From Hansen’s beautiful house and gardens at
Ordrupgaard to the streets of bohemian Paris, this film takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected.
