The Hirschsprung Collection was founded by the Copenhagen-born tobacco manufacturer Heinrich Hirschsprung (1836-1908) and his wife Pauline Hirschsprung. From the mid-1860s onwards, spanning a period of more than 40 years, Heinrich Hirschsprung acquired a large number of paintings, drawings, and sculptures by contemporary Danish artists, including the Skagen painters, the Symbolists, and the Fynboerne ("Natives of Funen", a group of artists from Funen who met at Zahrtmann’s school in the 1880s).
An impression art collection was built, providing an excellent overview of Danish 19th-century art.
