For art lovers
Museums in the city that you must see:
Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek,
(impressive collection of
Danish National Gallery:
Very interesting collections from different periods.
dutch well represented, special exhibition
with Cranach this summer.
but very interesting section with
Matisse, Braque, etc. including a cute Modigliani.
for foreign visitors, the section
on Danish "Golden Age" may be the most interesting.
The Hirschsprung Collection.
Small museum not so far from the above.
If you only have
time for one museum, this is the one to choose.
Go for Vilhelm Hammershøi if you are in a sombre mood,
but do not miss Anna Ancher's pictures with sunlight - and
other of the so-called Skagen painters.
Danish impressionist Theodor Philipsen (you can easily
find his paintings, he's very fond of cows)
Thorvaldsen's Museum. Museum for famous Danish sculpturer
Bertel Thorvaldsen. If you have the chance, admire
his works in the
Copenhagen Cathedral (free
organ music concerts every
Saturday at noon).
One of Denmarks's currently most interesting interpreters
of Beethoven's piano sonatas, Anne Øland, is working her way through a
cycle of all sonatas in Tivoli's concert hall.
19:30 at the dates July 18, 22, 25, 29, and August 1, 5, 7, 2002
