12 Oct-17 March. The National Gallery of Denmark zooms in on a selection of paintings, sketches, prints and architectural drawings and asks how the finer details affect our understanding of a picture.
Although minor details tend to be overlooked, they often hold key information. The exhibition, which confronts viewers with a selection of details designed to change, confound and question reactions, is the result of an art theoretical analysis of the role of details in art from the 18th century to the 1930s.
On display are pieces by Danish and international artists such as Christen Købke, Hammershøi, Jens Juel, Richard Mortensen, Franciska Clausen and Caspar David Friedrich.
The works come mainly from the Royal Collection of Graphic Art, the gallery’s vast collection of art on paper, which comprises more than 240,000 works dating from the 15th century to the present day.
10.00-17.00. Closed Mon, Wed.
