Willumsen's Museum

Willumsen's Museum is a museum for the Danish artist Jens Ferdinand Willumsen’s art and art collection as well as his archive and books.

J.F. Willumsen – One of a kind and a great norm breaker in Danish art. Step inside his world, where transgressive, wild and ambitious works continue to challenge and fascinate us. Here at his museum you can experience Willumsen’s art, his private art collection and special exhibitions, as well as a range of activities for all ages.

Take a look inside Willumsens’s World. Today many of Willumsen’s major works stand as significant contributions to Nordic modernism, but equally many were previously dismissed and have only recently been reclaimed by art history. Throughout his life Willumsen was determined to go his own way, and some of his most radical and explosively colourful works were made towards its end. This late period has, until recently, been largely underestimated, fulfilling Willumsen’s prophecy that his art would only be understood by posterity.

Current Exhibitons:

The exhibition will present works by El Greco and Nordic artists in order to explore the Nordic reception and construction of El Greco in the decades 1885-1945, a period during which the artist becomes a cult figure before fading from view then being recently rediscovered. The exhibition will also address issues such as the image of the modern artist, translocality, and the migration of expressive form and imagery over time.


The museum has an “art-suitcase” and a creative workshop for children.
