  • Good, surprising and well composed exhibition on Japonisme. Both in relation to the exhibition with paintings that were shown and the photos and other artifacts from the period, inspired by Japan. Only sigh: incredibly long line at the coffee shop = we went elsewhere and ate.

  • It is the thing that I liked most of Copenhagen. Very close to Rosenborg Castle. There are works by Danish and I must say that some authors don't know them but I was impressed. There are also works by Picasso, Modigliani, Rembradt, Tintoretto, etc. I also loved the view Japanomania with paintings of various authors including Monet.

  • Disappointing exhibition. Nordic art inspired by japan in the early 20th century. Had not much to offer. It looks like that one has access to the entire Museum and the lovely cafe.
