Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Paintings


I enjoyed looking at the paintings at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen last month.
I hope you enjoy these photos I took of a few of them! Speaking of photos, all of the museums I visited in Copenhagen allowed photography, as long as flash was not used.
It's a shame that's not possible in Finnish National Gallery.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek sculptures


We spent our winter vacation in Copenhagen last month. I managed to squeeze in a couple of museum visits while there. Here are some of the beautiful sculptures I saw in Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.

Auguste Rodin, one of the three large marble versions of The Kiss. Commissioned by the founder of Glyptoteket, Carl Jacobsen. Beautiful.
