The great spring exhibition of 2012 serves a dual purpose: The exhibition presents the Danish artist Vilhelm Hammersh°i (1864-1916) and his art as a phenomenon in itself. In addition to this the exhibition takes a new ľ and investigative ľ approach to Hammersh°i by having his art enter into a dialogue with fellow European artists of his day. Vilhelm Hammersh°i (1864-1916) has often been regarded as a singular, isolated figure within the Danish and European art scene. The exhibition Hammersh°i and Europe marks a break with this tradition. It takes the artist down new roads by juxtaposing his works with those of other artists from his era such as Whistler, CarriÚre, Fantin-Latour, Gauguin, and Khnopff.
