For many years, the art of the Impressionists remained without public interest. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were denigrated and lived in poverty.

But then something remarkable happened. A new wave of collectors emerged and a struggle began among them for any works by these new and radical artists. Among them was the visionary Danish entrepreneur Wilhelm Hansen.

Hansen assembled a remarkable art collection at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Exhibition on Screen tells his fascinating story and, with exclusive access to a sold-out exhibition at London's Royal Academy, brings this extraordinary collection to the big screen.
