The Nivaagaard Collection
This delightful art collection situated North of Copenhagen was founded by Johannes Hage between 1895 and 1905. Covering the European Renaissance and Baroque painting and Danish Golden Age art, it he intimate museum building was built in temple style designed by Johan Schrøder. On 30 September 1908 Hage turned his collection into a self-owning institution which made it available to the public, which we can only thank him for.
The European collection contains works by Giovanni Bellini, Claude Lorrain and Rembrandt. The Danish collection contains works by some of the leading artists of the Danish Golden Age, including C.W. Eckersberg, Christen Købke, Johan Lundbye, Wilhelm Marstrand, Martinus Rørbye and P. C. Skovgaard.
