Frederik and Mary at re-opening of Glyptotek museum

This evening Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have attended the reopening of the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek which is a sculpture museum created by the Carlsberg beer founder Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914). The current museum is based on his collection and has been undergoing a rebuilding and refit since 2003. The artist who will be featured in a special exhibition for the re-opening is Degas in 'Degas and Landscape'.

"Today, the museum houses the largest collection of ancient art in Northern Europe, primarily sculpture, from Egypt, the Near East, Greece and Italy. But during the more than one hundred years of its existence, the museum has also expanded the collection of French and Danish art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Impressionists, Paul Gauguin and Auguste Rodin are particularly well represented." (from the museum's website)
