Barbie spoke to executive producer Phil Grabsky about the latest Exhibition on Screen

For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result.

Then something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged, and before long they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find.

Recently the subject of a major sell-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, the Ordrupgaard Collection includes major works by Monet, Degas, Cézanne, Pissarro, Sisley, Corot, Delacroix, Courbet, Manet, Morisot, and Gonzalès.

Amassed between 1910 and 1931 by visionary Danish collectors Wilhelm and Henny Hansen, it’s regarded as one of the most exquisite collections in Europe

In The Danish Collector: Delacroix To Gauguin, Exhibition on Screen, tells the Hansen’s fascinating story.
