FILM: The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gaugin
January 9 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm$9
For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen. It was an extraordinary moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue and subterfuge.
Some collectors we may recognize and some we may not, but Hansen amassed a remarkable collection housed at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. The film tells his fascinating story and, with exclusive access to a sell-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, brings the extraordinary collection to the big-screen in glorious high-definition.
Tickets are $9.00 available at the SteamPlant box office and online here.
Show starts at 4:30pm. Cash bar available.
