The Ordrupgaard Collection in Denmark is home to some of the most important Impressionist paintings in northern Europe. Next spring, we showcase 60 of its works by painters such as Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pisarro, Morisot and Degas – 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 Ordupgaard 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 Dupre and Daubigny.

The exhibition closes with a stunning series of Post-Impressionist works by Paul Gauguin that span his career, from Impressionist-inspired paintings to the highly personal use of colour, symbolism and simplified forms that he became known for.

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