09.03.2018 - 17.06.2018 Hirschsprung Collection, Copenhagen
Marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anton Melbye, The Hirschsprung Collection joins the Altonaer Museum in Hamburg to present a major exhibition about the artist. Melbye enjoyed widespread fame during his own lifetime, and his works were in great demand among Danish royalty and aristocrats as well as among illustrious clients abroad, from Hamburg to Paris and Istanbul. Melbye found his main subject matter on and by the sea, often depicting his chosen motifs with a keen sense for drama and mood.
The exhibition about Anton Melbye presents an artist that has almost been forgotten. By presenting the first exhibition ever staged about Melbye in Denmark, The Hirschsprung Collection calls attention to an overlooked, but important story where the sea forms the backdrop of international connections and alliances, outlooks, emotions and dramatic political events.
