A new work from PAX acquired by the museum

Johannes Larsen: Interiør fra PAX, 1955. Tusch og akvarel.

A fine little pen-and-ink drawing from 1955 gives new insight into where the PAX-collection at the Johannes Larsen Museum comes from.

The Johannes Larsen Museum has just acquired this pen-and-ink/watercolour drawing which shows Tulle and Nan Due Nielsen’s sitting room at PAX Beach Pavilion on South Beach in Kerteminde. The drawing was done by their good friend, Johannes Larsen, in 1955, when he was 87 years old! The work very convincingly shows the interior of the room, in a lifelike manner. It is even possible to recognize several of the pictures hanging on the walls, many of which are already in the museum’s collection. The museum owns a large oil painting showing the sitting room at PAX, also from 1955. The room is shown from the same angle as in the drawing, but with card players seated around the table, thus the title: The Card Players.

Tulle and Nan had a big art collection, which they donated to the newly opened museum in 1986. It is therefore a great pleasure for the museum to include this work in the collection, where it first and foremost will be displayed, in the room that is dedicated to works that hung in Tulle’s and Nan’s home - the so-called PAX-collection. The work is on display in the PAX Room on an easel, just opposite The Card Players
