"What are you looking at?!" While some artworks sure do look like they don't want to be disturbed, we urge you to ignore that completely and stare all you want!

Carl Bloch, 'In a Roman Osteria', 1866.

The ever elusive (almost)double-rainbow spotted outside the museum. It is said to bring good luck to everyone seeing it in their feed 🌈

This artwatcher gets it! We could spend hours upon hours upon hours getting lost in Hammershøi's moody works🎨

Vilhelm Hammershøi, 'The Buildings of the Asiatic Company, seen from St. Annæ Gade', 1902.⠀

There's something about the works of Vilhem Lundstrøm that will bring out your best colors.⠀

Vilhelm Lundstrøm, 'Seated Female Nude', 1940.⠀ ⠀

We're open! The entire building is now fitted with a new air conditioning system. This means that our European Art 1300-1800 exhibition (along with everything else) is now open once more.
And so you may want to push up those sunglasses and reacquaint yourself with Jordaens' masterful 'The Ferry Boat to Antwerp' (ca. 1616-34) - or any of the other highlights in this section. They're all looking forward to seeing you.

Thanks for all the sharing!
For the past month, popular art app @dailyart_official has featured SMK's collection widely on their channels. Thanks for bringing so many of our highlight to a broad, international audience.
This pic (which we almost managed to look natural) shows Elisabeth Jerichau Baumann's 'An Egyptian Pot Seller at Gizeh' (1878) as it appeared in the app. 📱🖼️

It is generally agreed among festival fans that the @roskildefestival of 1612 was one of the best ever.
