Complementary exhibitions shine light on Golden Age artists


This autumn offers two exhibitions about Danish Golden Age painter Martinus Rørbye thanks to the co-operation of Nivaagards Malerisamling and Øregaard Museum. 

With an ethnographic approach, Rørbye depicted portraits and landscapes, both in and outside Denmark. While the museum concentrates on his Danish works, Malerisamling focuses on his travels in Italy, Greece and Turkey, where he was mostly interested in exotic motifs.   
The exhibitions complement each other, but also work as stand-alone projects. 

Opens Sep 7; Nivaagaards Malerisamling, Gammel Strandvej 2, Nivå & Øregaard Museum, Ørehøj Alle 2, Hellerup;,
