Gauguin and Impressionists. Masterpieces from the Ordrupgaard Collection

Padova, Palazzo Zabarella
September 29th 2018 – January 27th 2019
Exclusively for Italy, at Palazzo Zabarella in Padua, the French treasures from the Danish Museum of Ordrupgaard. The exhibition offers a selection of masterpieces by Cézanne, Degas, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Berthe Morisot, Renoir, and Matisse.

The exhibition presents the best of the collection created in the early twentieth century by the banker, insurer, Councilor of State and philanthropist Wilhelm Hansen and his wife Henny. Collection that is considered today one of the most beautiful European collections of Impressionist art, and that, in the aftermath of the First World War, was evaluated as “unrivaled in Northern Europe”.

In just two years, from 1916 to 1918, Hansen was able to create, thanks to the prudent advice of one of the most important art critics of the moment, Théodore Duret, a collection that his colleague Swedish collector Klas Fåhræus would have described as “the best impressionist collection in the world”.
