Synopsis

For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result. Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Among them was Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen.

 

Hansen amassed a remarkable collection housed at his summer house, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. From Hansen's beautiful house and gardens to the streets of bohemian Paris, this film takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected.
