Louisiana Museum of Modern Art Collection

. June 29, 2012 . 0 Comments

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art collection comprises over 3000 items, of which many are highly important works. There is a constant endeavour to renew the collection and close ‘gaps’ – in recent years the museum has added Louise Bourgeois, Philip Guston and David Hockney to the collection on the ‘classic modernism’ front as well as important young art from the international contemporary art scene.

Louisiana opened in 1958 with a collection of modern Danish art. The original idea of the museum was to show the interaction between visual art, architecture and the landscape, and to create a distinctive Danish milieu, a sanctuary for people with a commitment to the art of the period. From the mid-60s on, Louisiana changed its approach from being a predominantly Danish museum to a museum with an international collection.
