Queen Margrethe has agreed to become Patron of a Danish-French research collaboration between the Marmottan Monet Museum in Paris and Skagen's Art Museums, it was announced today.

The project between the two museums aims - among other things - at making Danish painter P.S. Kryer more known for a wider public.

That's a nice painting from what I can see. It is a good initiative.

The painter Kryer and his contemporaries who lived and worked in Skagen around 1890 or so constituted a golden age in Danish art - and indeed many paintings are certainly worth a closer study.

I suggest you do a google image search using this word: Skagensmalerne.

Here are a few samples:

Today is Sankt Hans Day, with public bonfires to celebrate midsummer, as it was more than 100 years ago:

Thank you, Iceflower.

That's one seriously tall guardsman! Especially considering QMII isn't small herself.

It's the first time the watch-ceremony takes place at Marselisborg.
Normally the parade takes place at the guards battalion's barracks near Rosenborg Castle. But due to Corona the parade has been scaled down.

Also, QMII presented a watch to a former guardsman. That presentation had to be cancelled three months ago, due to the lockdown.

QMII has, as you now know, started her summer holiday at Marselisborg.

https://www.tvguide.dk/nyheder/2020/...egnet-i-aarhus

Normally she arrives to Aarhus aboard Dannebrog, but the ship has apparently been decommissioned for this year. (*) So QMII opted to arrive by ordinary train. No royal saloon car.
But it seems she wanted to be as discreet as possible, so instead of getting off at the central station, the train stopped at the old, and now disused freight terminal. There is no platform there, so it's down stairs, but despite being 80 and having had problems with her legs, she managed that in fine form. Walked discreetly through a fence to a waiting Bentley and drove off to Marselisborg. (Using the nearby inner ring-road she must have been there within ten minutes, despite traffic.)

(*) Poor conscripts! Having waited for two-three years to serve aboard Dannebrog, only for Corona to ruin it all.

QMII (as well as M&F, Mary perhaps in particular) has had very good news today - and bad news.

Her old friend, the composer Bent Fabricius Bjerre, has died, age 95.
He died after a short period of illness.

He was one of the friends who took turn hosting the New Year party QMII attends every year.

Mary was also fond of him and showed the openly.

As for Denmark and the Danes, a truly iconic composer, who made countless hits throughout his very long career, is no more.

.
Wasn't he the composer of the song Mary sang to Frederik at his 40th birthday party? Can't remember if he was responsible for the lyrics or if that was Mary.

He was no doubt the composer and perhaps he helped her with the lyrics.

And I think we should listen to a couple of his many, many music pieces.







He composed music since the 50's until quite recently, when he fell ill with leukemia.
