THE HIRSCHSPRUNGS SAMLING
The Hirschsprung Collection is founded by the Copenhagen tobacco manufacturer Heinrich Hirschsprung and his wife Pauline Hirschsprung. In 1902, they donated their impressive art collection, which gives an excellent picture of Danish art in the 19th century, to the Danish state, and in 1911 the Hirschsprungske Samling opened in Østre Anlæg in a newly built museum with facade facing Sto ckholmsgade.
The museum has since been open to the public and exhibits daily a collection of over 700 exhibits in fine interiors that also contain furniture from the artists' homes. The exhibition rooms' intimate atmosphere and the collection's main works make the visit to the Hirschsprungske Samling a special experience for the whole family.
You can include experience works by the golden age artists CW Eckersberg, Christen Købke and J.Th. Lundbye, Skagen painters such as PS Krøyer, Anna and Michael Ancher, Funcomers, Symbolists and not least Vilhelm Hammershøi.
