Testing out the New Years Eve outfit early this year... 🦉

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the owl was associated with winter, which would seem to fit well with the attires worn by these two feathered specimens.
One of the more curious works in our collection, "How Well We Go Together" is part of a series depicting animals in human garb, the rest of which are now known only in print reproductions.

Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne (1590-1662), "How Well We Go Together", 1604-1662.

A picture of a painting of a dream... In 1934 Danish Rita Kernn-Larsen (1904-1998) was exploring the sub-conscious and the irrational as part of the surrealist agenda.
Her watery/dreamy 'Phantoms' was acquired by SMK in 1988 and is currently on display at @glholtegaard's impressive Kernn-Larsen exhibition.

Time-out in the Sculpture Street can take many forms... Here's a few of our younger guests getting an introduction to Judith Hopf's OUT in the x-room (which closes pretty soon, too!)📺 #smkmuseum #artmuseum #dkmuseum #instamuseum #copenhagen #sharingcph #voreskbh #museum

It's about time we got the chance to show off this winter classic again! ❄️ The painting is one of the most well known of the Skagen paintings, but the inspiration for it may, at least partly, have originated in a very different place than this cold wintery scene. You can learn much more about this in todays episode of Kærs Art Calender via the link in our bio👆🏻 Michael Ancher, 'The Lifeboat is Taken through the Dunes', 1883.

When the Danish painters are not busy conversating in in the painting 'A Group of Danish Artists in Rome' by Constantin Hansen (the guy peeking through the door to the right🎩), you might very likely find them filling their bellies in a Roman osteria. This festive painting can be experienced over at our friends at @thorvaldsensmuseum (which we most definitely recommend).🎨✨⠀

But not only is it a festive painting in many ways, it also has something very special to do with todays episode of Kærs Art Calendar, which you can experience via the link in our bio. ⠀

Ditlev Blunck, Danish artists at the Osteria La Gensola in Rome, 1837. ⠀

Just one month left to experience our special exhibition 'OUT' by German artist Judith Hopf. It features unbelievably large pears, a flying cinema and so-called 'laptop men' 👀
