Ordrupgaard’s French collection visits the Kinsky Palace
Ordrupgaard’s French collection has left Switzerland and is now visiting the Kinsky Palace in Prague. Since autumn 2017, Ordrupgaard’s unique collection of French art has been touring outside the borders of Denmark. The museum is closed, and the French masterpieces have therefore been available for loan to a large number of prominent museums abroad. A total of 60 works are being displayed in a large collection exhibition.
Ordrupgaard is closed due to the construction of the museum’s new gallery, Himmelhaven. However, this does not mean that the collection of French art must collect dust in storage. On the contrary. Since the closing of the museum, the paintings have been on tour abroad. And the next stop is the beautiful Kinsky Palace, which is part of the National Gallery in Prague. The exhibition French Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Ordrupgaard Collection shows 60 works by some of the 19th century’s greatest painters such as Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin and Henri Matisse.
The exhibition French Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Ordrupgaard Collection is on view at the Kinsky Palace in Prague from 29 June until 13 October 2019.
