June 4 - August 28, 2011 The Collection. A New Presentation

Holstebro Kunstmuseum is different from other Danish art museums. The museum communicates art as a universal phenomenon by exhibiting Danish twentieth century and contemporary art together with international and non-western art.

The museum collects relatively few artists. As a rule, however, these are collected retrospectively.

The following artists from the collection are exhibited:

Astrid Noack (1888-1954), sculptures, drawings
Lauritz Hartz (1903-1987), paintings
