30 September - 8 January. The Louisiana presents an exhibition which explores the important relationship between Paul Klee and the Cobra group of artists from Denmark, Belgium and The Netherlands.

When Klee (1879-1940) rediscovered his own childhood drawings it proved a turning point for the young Swiss artist, who found in these drawings the kind of authenticity he had been searching for.

The Cobra artistic movement (1948-1951) was inspired by Klee's discovery and set out to explore the art found in children's pictures.

The exhibition at Louisiana assembles some 120 works by Klee and a similar number of works by Cobra artists, who saw Klee as something of a father figure.

The show is divided into five key themes: children, acrobats, animals, war and masks.
