The home that Johannes and Alhed Larsen created became a key meeting place for the artists of the time. Today, the home looks very much as it did when the Larsen family were living there.
Johannes and Alhed Larsen created not only a picturesque setting for their lives, but also a hospitable meeting place that influenced Danish art and culture for decades. Visit a living artist’s home from the early 20th century.
The scenery in and around Kerteminde is stunning. That was also the opinion of Johannes Larsen and certain other painters. Nature is an overriding theme at the Johannes Larsen Museum. In our exhibitions, activities and events, nature often plays a major role.
Johannes Larsen referred to his studio as his ‘workshop’. It was here he created a large number of his major and well-known works. Right next to Johannes Larsen’s studio is the smaller workshop of Alhed Larsen. Both studios have direct access to Alhed’s beautiful conservatory.
I had never seen such a perfect place. The rare combination of art, nature, peace and beauty. Amazing exhibition and friendly staff. What's not to like?
A beautiful paradise of art, garden, and nature. Go!
In Kerteminde you will find a fantastic art museum. It is built around the pictures from the Group "The Funen painters", notably Johannes Larsen and Fritz Syberg and their contemporaries. Besides the permanent exhibition, they arrange exhibitions of fine art. It can be old painters or new painters. But always a fantastic Collection. And they publish catalogues or even books with every new exhibition. So if you visit Denmark, make sure to go to Kerteminde and see the Johannes Larsen Museum. And if you are hungry, they serve excellent food. Especially known for their cakes!
