See the golden apple jump!

20. June 2017 | The Johannes Larsen Museum

Upon the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Johannes Larsen’s birth in 2017, we have tried to get a golden apple to jump over the spout of water in the little fountain in the courtyard. It hasn’t been easy, but now the code has been cracked.

It was originally the architect, designer, art critic, composer and more, Poul Henningsen (PH), who had the idea for the golden apple when he visited Mill Hill (Møllebakken) in 1917. He made an apple and a mechanism to catch the apple and make it jump over the water spout again, inspired by the Caritas Well, a fountain on Gammel Torv (Old Square) in Copenhagen, which then, as now, is supplied with golden apples on the Queen’s birthday.

Now, at long last, Larsen has got his own golden apple again!
