This is one of my personal favorites in the Islamic collection at the David Collection. I’ll tell you why tomorrow 🙂
Mr. David was a lawyer who left behind a substancial amount of money. Until his deathhe had mostly collected odds and ends from Europe. You will find a couple of beautiful paintings by Hammerhøj, but when the trust fund had a new man in charge he recognized the niche of an Islamic Collection. Since the 70’ies the fund has been buying up Islamic art and now have an amazing collection – all free of charge.
