Faaborg Museum is a Gesamtkunstwerk, a complete work of art, comprising painting, sculpture, architecture, furniture design and graphic design. The interplay between these elements is exceptional. The beautiful building houses exhibition galleries, mosaic floors, walls painted in fabulous colours, columns and a maze of corridors and rooms.
The ambition and vision of both the Museum’s patron, Mads Rasmussen, and the Funen Painters, Peter Hansen, Johannes Larsen, Fritz Syberg et al., were clear when they embarked on a joint project with the architect Carl Petersen. This collaboration produced a fine building for the Museum which attracts international attention today and is one of the most important examples of Danish neo-classicism.
