Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

In four years of travelling to Denmark I had never been to the famous Louisiana Museum of Modern Art! Shameful. So on Day 4 of our trip we visited - it was definately worth the wait.

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is situated in Denmark on the North Zealand coast in a spacious, old park with a fine view across the sound of Sweden.

It houses an exquisite collection of modern art by international artists such as Arp, Francis Bacon, Calder, Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Sam Francis, Giacometti, Kiefer, Henry Moore, Picasso, Rauschenberg and Warhol.

Louisiana is not merely an experience in modern and contemporary art, but a reflection of the interplay between art, architecture and landscape.

The gorgeous park serves as an ideal setting for displaying the museum’s collection of modern sculptures.

Similarly the prominent museum buildings, constructed between 1958 and 1998, offer a fascinating background for the permanent collection of twentieth century art.

We were there for hours & took in a traditional Danish picnic on the lawns - beautiful.
