danish fine and decorative arts​

Danish fine arts from c.1550 to c.1940 is represented, with the emphasis on the end of the 1800s and beggining of the 1900s.

The collection includes, amongst other things, a collection of "Golden Age" paintings taken over from Kolding Kunstforenings Kunstsam­ling, and goldsmith Holger Kyster's comprehensive collection of paintings and drawings by Svend Hammershøi.

Danish crafts and decorative art are represented mainly by works from circa 1550 to the beginning of the 20th century, and also by individual special collections from earlier and later periods:

  • Ecclesiastical art. The collection consists of medieval and Renaissance works and includes medieval sculptures of a high quality. The whole country is represented, with emphasis on objects from the parishes around and to the west of Kolding.
  • Furniture. The collection includes many high quality Renaissance chests and cupboards. All later stylistic periods until circa 1930 are represen­ted.
  • Ceramics. The collection includes faience and porcelain from the 1600s to the 1800s (Chinese, East Indian and Danish porcelain; faience from Holland, Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein). Danish, German and English utility ware from the same periods. Danish 'Skønvirke' (the Danish version of Art Nouveau) ceramics (first and foremost Thorvald Bindesbøll and Svend Hammershøi) 1885-1940.
  • Silver. The collection includes high quality Danish silverware from the Renaissance to the present with an emphasis on 20st and 21d Century. Danish silver is one of the museum's main areas of interest.
  • Textiles. The collection is very comprehensive as regards costumes and parts of costumes. Large collection of lace. (Can be viewed by appointment).
