Observingarts: The director’s personal exhibition at National Gallery of Denmark 11 February 2016

Intimacies in Art is about intimacy, the intimate space, and how artists from many periods – ranging from 1730 to 1930 – have sought to capture the private and the intimate through close observations of people, nature and the rooms in which we live. Curated by the director of the SMK - National Gallery of Denmark, Mikkel Bogh, the exhibition presents spectacular works and hitherto unseen gems by artists such as Chardin, Abildgaard, Munch, Bonnard and Hammershøi.
