The Danish Parliament

The three big paintings of eider in the parliamentary restaurant are among the main works of Johannes Larsen. They were a gift to the Danish Parliament from a group of well-to-do citizens in celebration of the artist's 60th birthday. Johannes Larsen's three works reproduce the atmosphere of morning, noon and evening as he experienced them on an eider hunt at Fyns Hoved.
