Rudolph Tegners Museum og Statuepark


SCULPTURE, ARCITECTURE AND NATURE

In the nature area, Rusland, close to the North Sealand coast lays the Rudolph Tegners Museum and Statuepark.

The sculptures by the artist Rudolph Tegner are found in the park with heather, the sky, and sea as a background and the museum from 1937 is an iconic building made of iron reinforced concrete. It is a beautiful and distinct tourist attraction.

RUDOLPH TEGNER (1873-1950) was during his studies and The Royal Danish Art Academy proclaimed to be the biggest sculpture talent since Bertel Thorvaldsen. His search for new expressions and his rebellion against the established art was his strength, but also a challenge.

His symbolic and vital works provoked by their size and content, yet he remained an uncompromising and productive artist, who was honoured, especially in France. This culminated in a gold medal at the Salon in Paris in 1931 for his work "Herakles og Hydraen", which symbolises the artists fight against the critics.

The idea for STATUEPARKEN came one summer day in 1916, where Rudolph and wife Elna were bicycling around the peculiar, heather grown landscape, Rusland (Russia), which has its name due to the remote location, and here he felt as one with the nature.

In the following years the couple bought an area of 170 acres and erected 14 statues. During summer, sheep of the breed Såne are grazing here. Find a map over the sculptures here at here. Out of consideration for the grazing sheep, it is not allowed to bicycle or bring your dog to the park.

Rudolph Tegner built the MUSEUM in 1937 out of iron reinforced concrete with an impressing octagonal middle hall surrounded by a vestibule and a side wing.
The museum is a one-man museum, displaying the artists work from the first, little, clay sculpture up to the last, unfinished work.

The dense and heavy door leads into the museum, where the great halls hold poetic, substantial, harsh and beautiful works. Many works are enormous and bare witness of an artist with a love and passion for the great story.

The artist couple is buried at the museum. The museum and the park are listed and preserved for posterity. The Museum is closed during winter and charges admission when open. Admission is free for children. The Park can be accessed all year round.

WHAT IS HAPPENING? The permanent exhibit of Rudolph Tegner’s sculptures can be seen at the Museum and in the Statueparken. The Museum has varying special exhibitions.

Try the drawing workshop for children and adults on the first floor. For children there is also an art hunt, orienteering in the Park along with trees, good for climbing.

The calendar holds activities such as concerts, film showings, lectures, workshops and guided tours. There is a tea garden at the museum. You can bring your own food, provided you buy your drinks here. It is also allowed to picnic in the area.
