The Louisiana Sculpture Parkaf Helle Crenzien
From the very start the park has been an essential part of the experience when one visits the Louisiana. The museum opened in 1958 with new buildings that stretched out towards the sea from the original villa. From everywhere in the buildings there are views of the sea, the old trees and the exotic vegetation; and of the sculptures that so elegantly extend the museum's collection out into the landscape.This book reviews the Sculpture Park historically and work by work. The reader gains insight into the deliberations that lie behind the placing of the individual sculptures - and the artists' own thoughts about the place.With works by artists like Max Ernst, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, Jean Dubuffet and many others, the Louisiana Sculpture Park is one of the finest in these latitudes. Classic modernism plays the main role, but contemporary artists like Janet Cardiff can also be experienced in the open air.The book includes a guide map with clear indications of all the works mentioned.
