31 Aug-20 Nov 2005. The Ordrupgaard museum reopened on 31 Aug, inaugurating the new wing designed by prize-winning Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, with an exhibition dedicated to Gauguins early years and his influence on fellow Impressionists. The works chosen for the exhibition focus on the years 1870-1880, which cover a relatively unknown period of the artists life. Nearly 70 pieces including sculpture and ceramics, as well as paintings are together on display for the first time in this comprehensive exhibition set up in collaboration with the Kimbell Art Museum of Fort Worth. Once an exclusive country house, built in the early 20th century, Ordrupgaard Museum is set in an extensive park just to the north of Copenhagen. Admission: Dkk 65; under 16s free. Tues, Thurs, Fri 13.00-17.00 Weds 10.00-20.00 Sat-Sun 11.00-17.00.
