Just over two decades ago, Wilhelm Marstrand’s Liggende Model (Reclining Nude) was bought by a private Swiss collector at a Danish auction. When the Danish authorities blocked the export of the painting, the new owner promptly packed the little Golden Age gem away in a safe-deposit box in Copenhagen. Now, Marstrand’s painting has finally found a permanent home at The Nivaagaard Collection, thanks in part to support from the New Carlsberg Foundation.
