National Gallery of Denmark

The collections at the National Gallery of Denmark comprise three main collections: The Royal Collection of Painting and Sculpture, The Royal Collection of Graphic Art, and The Royal Collection of Plaster Casts. As the names suggest, these collections have their roots in the art collections of Danish monarchs; they are believed to date back to King Christian II and the mid-16th century, when the Danish monarchs bought and were given works of art from all over Europe. The collections are home to works of art from the 14th century to the present day. The art housed here includes works from Denmark and from other countries – among these Italy, France, Germany, and The Netherlands. Through its take on (art) history, the Gallery’s ongoing focus on the contemporary makes it part of history.
