In connection with the exhibition ‘Danish Paintings from the Golden Age to the Modern Breakthrough’, Scandinavia House hosts two special screenings of Bille August’s movie ‘Marie Krøyer’ (Denmark 2012):
Marie Krøyer (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen) was married to the great 19th-century Danish painter P.S. Krøyer (Søren Sætter-Lassen). At the peak of their marriage, marked by easy living and high social status, his mental illness becomes more severe and their dream of sharing a life as artists slowly crumbles into frustration and sorrow.
