Carl Bloch: The Master’s Hand featured five large altar paintings from churches in Denmark and Sweden. Four of these paintings were taken out of their altar settings for the first time since they were originally installed in the late 1800s. The other altar painting, Christ Healing the Sick at Bethesda has become the museum’s signature piece since it was acquired in September 2001. Additional religious paintings and etchings along with genre, history, portrait and landscape paintings from Danish museums also were included in the exhibition.
