29 Oct-28 Feb. Visitors to the Statens Museum for Kunst can observe the museum’s conservators at work as they restore The Royal Table of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor.
The large-scale painting is in the private collection of the Queen of Denmark and has hung in the royal quarters at Fredensborg Palace since 1872.
It was painted in 1741 by Johann Salomon Wahl, a German painter who became court painter in Denmark. For the last 15 years the painting was kept in storage and fell into poor repair.
It is currently undergoing a comprehensive 2,200-hour restoration programme to return it to its original condition.
