Search: "Jelling". (big historical stone representing christianity in Denmark. Result: a cup.
A Mummy. Unknown.
Livingroom. 1974. Unknown.
P.S. Krøyer. Very famous painting (Mona Lisa-ish).
Googles Pitch: "to experience the art and ideas that shaped our world, right from our own home".
Conclusion: most of the artists were "unknown". A few classics. Most of it irrelevant to understand Danish culture from artistic point of view.
Conclusion: I would have expected more contemporary from New York search. Only 224 items from Moma. Not really inspiring or interesting at all - at least for me.
