Six stars to Garden by the Sea

20. June 2017 | The Johannes Larsen Museum

Under the headline “Summer came in April”, the newspaper Fyens Stiftstidende (Funen’s Diocese Times) gave a really fine review of our exhibition, Garden by the Sea. Journalist Malene Birkelund wrote:

“The Johannes Larsen Museum in Kerteminde succeeds not only by paying tribute to the way the painters Johannes Larsen and Fritz Syberg grew their gardens, but it delivers a declaration of love to the Danish national soul.”

And:

“It’s as if summer has moved into the museum now at the end of April. As if the air is full of endorphins, so you forget the frost-blue sky outside and get winter removed from your mood.”

We are also in a good mood, ourselves, over the exhibition here at the Johannes Larsen Museum, but it gets even better when we can brag about getting six lovely stars (out of six). Thanks for the stars!
