Impressionist Treasures: The Ordrupgaard Collection
Enjoy a spectacular selection of artworks from a collection regarded as one of the most beautiful in Europe.
Impressionist Treasures features masterpieces from the renowned Ordrupgaard Museum in Copenhagen and its exquisite collection of works by the top artists of 19th-century French painting.
Visitors to the National Gallery of Canada will be treated to a survey of art by the great masters of Impressionism, Post-impressionism and the major trends of French painting that preceded them, such as the Barbizon School and Realism.
In one compelling presentation, the luminous landscapes of Corot, Monet, Sisley and Pissarro rub shoulders with the naturalism of Courbet, the still-lifes of Manet and Matisse, the intimate portraits of Renoir and Morisot, and the imagination of Gauguin. This exhibition of 76 paintings is also a unique opportunity to discover unparalleled works from the Danish Golden Age, including those by C. W. Eckersberg and Vilhelm Hammershøi.
Experience one of Europe’s best-kept secrets at the National Gallery of Canada.
Impressionist Treasures: The Ordrupgaard Collection has been organized by Ordrupgaard, Copenhagen and the National Gallery of Canada.
There is only one master here—Corot. We are nothing compared to him, nothing.
