Complete Catalogue of Paintings, Sculptures, Pastels, Drawings, and Prints
Text by Nanna Kronberg Frederiksen.
Located in the Danish suburb of Charlottenlund, just north of Copenhagen, the Ordrupgaard Museum is home to one of the finest collections of French art in the world. Its founder, insurance magnate Wilhelm Hansen (1868-1936), bought his first piece of art in 1892, and soon acquired works by Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir.
