Jeg har selv været på Skt. Croix, i de Vestindiske Øer et par gange og det er utroligt at se nogle af billederne der hænger herinde. Det er nøjagtigt den udsigt jeg så, da jeg selv var der og det syntes jeg er sjovt at se. Det er rigtig flot gengivet – især lyset og havet.

The reason why we wanted to come here is because this part of his life has never been addressed before in a serious exhibition. And from what we have seen up until now it’s the first time that someone have worked in a deep, profound and serious way in addressing this moment in his life and career trying to understand it. It is a moment of his life that remains fairly mysterious – also to some of us because we don’t know this part of our great grandfather. And so, even for us, it’s a learning process and in that sense it is a rare exhibition. Even more than 100 years after the death of the artist an exhibition like this have never been done before.
