Niels Larsen Stevns

Niels Larsen Stevns

On the basement floor, the museum has a collection of Niels Larsen Stevns’ (1864-1941)  work. He was a painter and sculpture best known for his unique and bold way of using color in his artwork. He is one of the most permanent Danish artists of the century best known for his frescoes paintings.

From an early age, Stevns had a passion for art. He started wood carving as a young boy and later in life he discovered his love for painting. His dedication to art can also be seen from his educational background, which includes the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Zahrtmann's painting school. Niels was a religious artist, which was a motive in his artwork alongside landscapes. Moreover, Stevns also worked with decorative pieces, such as helping to decorate the Viborg Cathedral and the memorial hall at H.C. Andersens House in Odense.

Niels Larsen Stevns’ collection is a permanent exhibition and can be seen all year round.
