International in its perspective as well as its scale, The Louisiana Collection The Louisiana Collection comprises a good 4,000 works. It covers the period from 1945 to the present and includes almost every genre – with an emphasis on painting and sculpture. The Louisiana Collection is continually expanded and far too large to be shown in its entirety. For this reason, besides individual features that are almost always on view, the bulk of the collection is shown in rotating selective presentations. This allows space for exhibitions and provides opportunities to show the works in new ways and configurations. (Via: Louisiana MoMa)

As Denmark’s national gallery, SMK (Statens Museum for Kunst) contains an important part of the nation’s visual culture heritage. The museum houses multiple forms of expression that bear witness to ideas, thoughts, and experiences of human beings from Western culture, from the 1300s to or own time. As a visible agent in society, SMK will bring art and art-based reflection to everyone in Denmark and to those interested in art throughout the world.

Thorvaldsens Museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic museum building was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago. Thorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the permanent collections, including contemporary art. (Via: Thorvaldsen)
