Vilhelm Lundstrøm

The epitome of good taste


Vilhelm Lundstrøm (1893-1950) is one of the most famous and beloved Danish painters of the 20th century. He began by shaking up bourgeois taste with his expressive, flamboyant style. Later, Lundstrøm captured the modern spirit with his simple still lifes of jugs and fruit, and female models on blue backgrounds. Designers such as Poul Henningsen and Finn Juhl were inspired by Lundstrøm. They all dreamed of a better world through simple lines and functional forms. The exhibition tells a story of Lundstrøm and Danish design. At the exhibition, we recreate a number of historic interiors with furniture and paintings that are modern icons today. The exhibition has been created in collaboration with Kunsten – Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg.
