Description:

Despite its unassuming exterior and out of the way location, the Hirschsprung museum has one of the world's largest collection of paintings from what is known as the Danish Golden Age of art and thus offers a fantastic overview of Danish 19th century art. The extensive private collection of tobacco tycoon Heinrich Hirschsprung (1836-1908) and his wife Pauline includes a great deal of work from the Skagen painters, including P.S. Krøyer and Michael and Anna Ancher. This small, old-fashioned museum is positively crammed with art, the walls filled with gilt-framed oil paintings – even the furniture is a period antique from the family collection.
