The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin

Sedona International Film Festival presents the Exhibition on Screen series with “The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin”. The event will show in Sedona on Tuesday, Jan. 4 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre. For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result. 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.
