The National Gallery of Denmark is enormous. The amount of art on exhibition would be impossible to view in one day. Hence I decided to restrict myself to the French Impressionists. The lady on the counter tried to persuade me to also visit the Danish impressionists. But when she told me there was a Rodin exhibition I decided to limit my visit to the French impressionists and Rodin.
This collection was donated to the museum by Johannes Rump (1861-1932) a Dutch collector. Most of the works were created between 1920 and 1930. Among the works are some of the most famous french impressionists. He also collected some non french impressionists who were working n Paris at the time.
The works collected by Rump would have been what I would have collected if I had been alive then and had sufficient means to be a collector. The works on display are stunning and beautifully lit making a visit extra special.
