The Old Villa and North Wing

In the Old Villa and the North Wing – and in the glass corridor with its view of the greens and colours in the Sculpture Park, a selection of works from the Louisiana Collection is exhibited.

Starting off in the Old Villa, the first meeting along your way is currently a graphic series Untitled (Sophie) by German artist Thomas Schütte. These 25 loosely sketched portraits showcase Schüttes playful take on the classical portraiture genre and the classic technique of photogravure. Continuing through the glass corridors, you pass a contemporary masterpiece by Gerhard Richter: a totally mesmerizing inkjet print, where colours are systematized according to a so-called empty principle. 

Further along the way you will see French artist Francis Picabia's work Sitelle from 1931, as well as a selection of sculptures by Alberto Giacometti and have a close view to sculptures by Max Ernst and Alicja Kwade in the park.  

Between the Giacometti Gallery and the Asger Jorn Gallery - with a view of the garden on each side of the room - a number of works by five Nordic sculptors take the floor. This display ranges from the classic seriousness in the portrait of Adam Fischer to the playful, contemporary forms of Tal R and Per Inge Bjørlo. On the walls a humurous series of photogravure by Al Taylor.
