Historic Paintings


When I'm reading books on Danish history, they are often illustrated with a lot of paintings with historic motifs, like this one "The conspirators riding from Finderup barn following the murder of Eric V Klipping in 1286" by Otto Bache. Many of them were painted for the museum at Frederiksborg Castle in the late 19th hundreds, so when visiting here, the paintings are like old friends.
