Louisiana Museum for Modern Art
Louisiana is not merely an experience in modern and contemporary art, but a congenial reflection of the interplay between art, architecture and landscape. Situated in Denmark on the North Zealand coast in a spacious, old park with a fine view across the sound of Sweden. The 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 20th century art. It houses an exquisite collection by international artists such as Arp, Francis Bacon, Calder, Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Sam Francis, Giacometti, Henry Moore, Picasso, Rauschenberg and Warhol. Architectonically, the new wings are still in harmony with the first Louisiana. But the architects have naturally changed their ideas during the many years that have passed since 1956. New stylistic elements have been introduced here and there, but the continuity has been retained.
