BIRD 2019

Tid: September 28, 2019 - January 26, 2020
Sted: Johannes Larsen Museum

A new exhibition focuses on birds in art in the year 2019!

The exhibition BIRD 2019 will present a cavalcade of exciting works of art in different media and materials, but the common denominator will be, that all of them have birds as their motif.

Through an Open Call, all artists in Denmark have been encouraged to offer their works of art with a bird’s eye view to the exhibition.

Bird art on Mill Hill

Birds have always been the pivotal point on Mill Hill in Kerteminde. When the painter Johannes Larsen moved here in 1901, he brought his great interest for birds with him. At that point, he was already known as a bird painter, even though his work was broader than that. On Mill Hill, he and his wife, Alhed Larsen, created a world of motifs around them, which also included birds: chickens, ducks and peacocks were among the tame ones, and startlings, blackbirds and other songbirds were among the wild ones that Johannes Larsen often found and drew in the trees and bushes of their garden.


Exhibition catalogue

In connection with the exhibition, a catalogue will be published, presenting all the artwork in the exhibition.
