Portraits of the World: Denmark
“Portraits of the World: Denmark” will feature the painting “Kunstdommere” (Art Judges) by Michael Ancher (1849–1927), on loan from the Museum of National History in Hillerød, Denmark. The monumental group portrait pays tribute to a tightly knit artists’ community in northern Denmark, which served as the incubator for the Modern Breakthrough in Danish painting. A complementary display of American portraits will highlight the proliferation of artists’ communities in New York City during the first half of the twentieth century, which likewise accelerated the development of modern art in the United States. This exhibition celebrates the third iteration in the museum’s “Portraits of the World” series which previously focused on spotlight works from Switzerland (2017–18) and Korea (2018–19). This exhibition is curated by Curator of Prints and Drawings Robyn Asleson.
