This important exhibition brings together the most exhaustive selection of paintings by Christen Købke (1810–1848) ever to be shown outside Denmark.

Købke was a pre-eminent painter in his country and one of the foremost talents of Denmark’s Golden Age.

The exhibition features around 40 of Købke’s most celebrated works, spanning a variety of genres. Giving an overview of Købke’s achievement within its cultural context, the exhibition emphasises his exquisite originality and experimental outlook while focusing on the most innovative aspects of his work.

Købke’s paintings demonstrate his ability to endow ordinary people and places and simple motifs with a universal significance, creating a world in microcosm for the viewer.

This exhibition is organised with the National Gallery in London, where it will be on show from the 17 March to the 13 June 2010.
