    The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin

    For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and the artists left penniless as a result.

    Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman, Wilhelm Hansen.

    Hansen amassed a remarkable collection housed at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Exhibition on Screen tells his story and, with exclusive access to the RA’s sell-out exhibition, brings the extraordinary collection to the big-screen in high-definition.
