Views of Copenhagen started appearing in Vytautas Kasiulis’ works following the artist’s visit in the Danish capital and the major exhibition held in the Charlottenburg Museum in 1959. The painter has created a series of paintings and graphic art works inspired by the Danish capital’s more scenic locations. He was especially drawn to the fairy-tale, festive motifs of Tivoli Park. One of the oldest amusement parks in the world, it was founded in 1843 based on motifs from the stories of Hans Christian Andersen. The park was named after Tivoli in Italy which the famous writer had visited. From the mid-19th century the park became a popular family fun and meeting place that offered many various attractions – theatre productions, music concerts, carnival amusements, firework displays, cafes and restaurants. This fragment of Tivoli painted by V. Kasiulis shines in bright, rich colours, excellently conveying the image of a fairy-tale city seeped in childhood nostalgia, illuminated by night-lighting.
