Known for its fairy tale-like settings and outstanding collection of works by CoBrA artists Carl-Henning Pedersen and Else Alfelt, the CHPEA Museum is visited by fans of CoBrA art from all over Europe. However, with A Fabulous Encounter, the museum has managed to attract – and surprise – not just existing CoBrA enthusiasts, but also people who had never heard of Carl-Henning Pedersen before. Museum director Lotte Korshøj explains: “Yes, some of our guests have arrived with a sort of ‘is this even a real thing’ kind of attitude. A lot of people find it hard to unite the idea of royalty and art.”
