The mythical piggy wagon has appeared in the Sculpture Street - seemingly out of nowhere. What does it want? Only time will tell🐷⠀

Hello Instagram, may we present to you a riddle?🃏 The museum has ten paintings by the famous Dutch master Rembrandt, then it has zero paintings by the very same master, and then it has two paintings - all without buying or selling a single artwork. How in the world is that possible?🤔🤯⠀

The answer to this question (and many more) can be found in the new episode of our very own podcast. Link to that can be found in our bio! Happy listening🎧⠀

Rembrandt van Rijn, 'Sketch for The Knight with the Falcon, known as "The Crusader', 1659-1661 + UV and X-ray images of the same work. ⠀

Like every instagrammer on Earth (yes, all of them) when seeing real snowfall for the first time in ages, we just had to grab our coats and run outside to get this picture of the museum as seen from the Østre Anlæg Park🌨🤩 #smkmuseum #artmuseum #dkmuseum #instamuseum #copenhagen #sharingcph #voreskbh #museum

Dear friends, the day has come! What day, you ask? 😱The legendary #museumselfie day of course! And while we could have gone the easy route and given you a single selfie, we thought we would do something a little more festive... May we present to you the triple #museumselfie 🤳🏼🤯 Gerard Van Honthorst, 'Musical Group by Candlelight', 1623.

Last week, we posted the painting "A Young Girl Preparing Chantarelles" by Peter Ilsted. The positive response to the painting was overwhelming, and so we thought: "Hey! Why not do it again, but this time with even more art?!" Well, here we are... Enjoy🤩😍⠀ Alongside his contemporary painter (and brother-in-law), Ilsted was part of what is known as ‘The Free Exhibition’, a school of painters now known for their works depicting tranquil interiors.

"Young girl with a tray" (1915), "Interior with a red scarf" (1913), "Morning sun" (1912), "Interior" (1912), "At the spinet" (1911), all by Peter Ilsted. ⠀

This is Discobolus. Discobolus has decided to get back in shape for his New Years resolution, and can be found hiding somewhere in the Sculpture Street, practicing his discos throwing. Make sure to cheer for him when you run into him. Not literally, of course...😅💥🏃🏽‍♂️ What are your New Years resolutions?

The subtle color-tones, the light coming in the window, the person engulfed in everyday chores in a simple setting - it must be by Vilhelm Hammershøi, right?!🔍 ⠀

The criteria surely fit, but in fact, this work was created by his fellow painter (and brother-in-law) Peter Ilsted. Alongside Hammershøi, Peter Ilsted was a member of what is known as 'The Free Exhibition' - a progressive art society created near the end of the 19th century that became known for painting the tranquil and serene interiors we know today🎨⠀

Peter Ilsted, 'A Young Girl Preparing Chantarelles', 1892.⠀

It's a new year, and the winds of change are blowing. However, we are also pretty happy that some things stay the same. This lovely pair by Vilhelm Lundstrøm, for example🍶🍊 Vilhelm Lundstrøm, 'Still Life with Water Jug, Towel and Jars', 1929 & Vilhelm Lundstrøm, 'Still Life with White Jar, Orange and Book' 1932-1933.
