Today, Princess Marie had her first official public engagement of the month as she opened a new exhibition in Paris. Read more below.
Princess Marie opened today the exhibition “L’Âge d’or de la peinture danoise” (The Golden Age of Danish Painting) at the Petit Palais in Paris. The exhibition will be opened for the public from September 22nd to January 3rd. The exhibition was organised in collaboration with the Statens Museum for Kunst (SMK) in Copenhagen and the Nationalmuseum of Stockholm.
More information about the exhibition from the Petit Palais: ” Precise and refined, more than 200 works by the leading artists of the time, like Christoffer Eckersberg, Christen Købke, Martinus Rørbye, and Constantin Hansen, offer an immersive view of Denmark in the 19th century. The fruit of recent research by an international team, the exhibition is designed to shed new light on a remarkable period of artistic output.”
The Danish Golden Age is traditionally thought of as the period between 1801 and 1848 during which “artists worked to forge an image of a powerful and united nation by focussing on the Copenhagen bourgeoisie and bucolic landscapes of their homeland.” The exhibition expanded the Golden Age to 1864 when Denmark was defeated by Prussia in the Second Schleswig War as the curators considered this year a turning point, both in terms of art history and in the mindset of the time.
Asked about Prince Joachim’s blood clot, she said that it was of course a horrible expériences but that now he is well and the whole family is fine as well.
Princess Marie wore a fully repeated outfit. She wore her Giambattista Valli rose print dress.
She paired the dress with her Jimmy Choo Romy pumps in nude suede and her YSL bag as well as her Rolex watch.
