Denmark’s Ordrupgaard Collection is a treasure trove of important Impressionist works. This year, we showcase 60 of its works by painters such as Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Morisot, Degas and Gauguin – many of which have never been seen in the UK.

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 Dupré and Daubigny.

The exhibition closes with a series of works by Paul Gauguin, which span his career, from Brittany to Tahiti, and chart the development of his highly personal use of colour and simplified forms.

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