Paul Gauguin, Tahitian Woman with a Flower, 1891, oil on canvas, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Cophenhagen, Denmark



Museum opened in 1897 in Copenhagen, based on collection of brewing magnate Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914); initial building constructed in the late nineteenth century is opulent in style; later additions in the twentieth century.

Three major areas of art: Ancient Greek and Roman Sculpture, French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism as well as Danish Art.

Impressive display of Rodin sculptures; numerous Gauguins (possibly because the artist’s wife was Danish and he resided in Denmark during the beginning of his career).

Lush palm courtyard in the interior plus impressive gallery for displaying ancient sculptures.
