What’s behind that mask?

Masks have always fascinated people since the dawn of time. From ancient cultures in the West through Japanese civilizations to the so-called “primitive” peoples, masks have formed an integral part of the human range of cultural expression at some time or other. 130 of these works of art by such different masters as Carpeaux, Rodin, Gauguin or Picasso, as well as many other artists from the 19th and early 20th centuries are exhibited at Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket in Copenhagen until November 1, 2009.
