A Company of Danish Artists in Rome
A Company of Danish Artists in Rome, painted by Constantin Hansen in 1837. This painting depicts several members of the Danish Golden Age, a period of exceptional creative production in Denmark in the early 19th century. In the painting, the architect Michael Gottlieb Bindesbøll is lying on the floor with a fez and pipe. Martinus Rørbye is sitting beside him on the floor, looking somewhat critically into his tiny coffee cup, while the artist sits in a chair. Wilhelm Marstrand, Albert Küchler, and Ditlev Blunck are on the balcony, and Jørgen Sonne is sitting on the table.Painting: Constantin Hansen
