Thomas Kluge (born 1969) is the enfant terrible of Danish contemporary art. Known for painting in a 400-year-old style and for portraying leading figures of the day, he is pre-eminent at capturing a photographic likeness of his models such as the Danish Queen, Margrethe II, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller and successful business magnates, as well as private friends. But his works are more than pure depictions of his subjects; they are also provide a characteristic of the human being to be found under the physical surface. Arranged in cooperation with Kronborg Castle, (the Elsinore Castle of Shakespeare’s Hamlet).
