During a time when Impressionist artists were ignored (if not attacked) by the public, Danish businessman and collector Wilhelm Hansen recognized the movement’s ground-breaking vision, amassing a remarkable collection at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. With exclusive access to a sold-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, this documentary tells the fascinating story of the Ordrupgaard collection, featuring some of the absolute jewels of 19th century French painting from artists like Monet, Degas, Pissarro, Corot, Courbet, Delacroix, and Gauguin.
