Gauguin and the Impressionists: Masterpieces from the Ordrupgaard Collection

Sonntag, 29.03.2020 bis Sonntag, 14.06.2020

Ausstellung, Royal Academy of Art, London

The Ordrupgaard Collection outside Copenhagen reads like a 19th-century roll-call of Impressionist masters who reshaped Western art. It was assembled by a wealthy Danish couple with the help of an early champion of Impressionism and French writer, Théodore Duret.

This exhibition is a unique opportunity to view the Ordupgaard Collection’s treasure trove of Impressionist works, from Monet and Degas, to pre-Impressionist artists like Corot and Courbet, as well as artists associated with the Barbizon School such as Dupre and Daubigny.

The exhibition closes with a stunning series of Post-Impressionist works by Paul Gauguin that span his career, from Impressionist-inspired paintings to the highly personal use of colour, symbolism and simplified forms that he became known for.

Exhibition organised by Ordrupgaard, Copenhagen and the Royal Academy of Arts.

Daily 10am – 6pm Friday 10am – 10pm, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BD
