Experience the Count’s art in a new gallery at Egeskov
Count Michael Ahlefeldt who owns and lives at Egeskov Castle, has pursued his passion for painting for many years. Now the time has come for Egeskov’s visitors to experience the Count’s art in a new gallery nestled in the heart of the garden.
In Galleri Ahlefeldt, you can see changing exhibitions of Michael Ahlefeldt’s art, and in the adjoining studio, you will sometimes meet guest artists busy creating works of their own.
Ahlefeldt paints and draws with a true passion for art. His works are full of joyful and lively emotions that reflect upon his life, in a natural and abstract idiom. The colour scheme in which he uses throughout his work is both gloomy and pompous – swaying from black, dark blue and olive green to light blue, an intense red and sunshine yellow. He uses brushstrokes dynamically and forcefully to convey his emotions.
The abstract works – playing with the paintings’ many layers of different themes and colours – give an eye-catchpturing glimpse of his artistic talent.
