Ib Antoni had many exciting collaborations with customers from all over the world – such as Charlottenborg, that invited to the exhibition Set of Varvara in 1970, for which Ib Antoni drew the beautiful illustration “The Rooster & The Hasselblad“.
Charlottenborg Castle, the oldest part of Charlottenborg, was one of the first larger buildings built on the brand new Kongens Nytorv and Gyldenløve demolished and recycled and stones from Kalø Castle (a castle ruin on the coast of Djursland) to build Gyldenløves Palais in 1672, as it was originally called. In 1699 Christian the 5th died and after this the queen, Charlotte Amalie took over the mansion as a widow’s seat, hence the name Charlottenborg. The widow queen passed away in 1714 and Charlottenborg was inherited and was used for very different purposes and had many different inhabitants. But slowly art took over and in 1787 the palace was transferred to the Academy of Fine Arts as property. In 1874, an exhibition building was built and today, with its 1,200 square meters of exhibition space, Charlottenborg is one of the largest exhibition buildings in Northern Europe.
As Antoni Legacy is constantly working on cleaning Ib Antoni’s beautiful original drawings, one can never know when a new illustration from Antoni’s hand will see the light of day. But when the illustration is ready for reproduction, it is added to the collection on this page, both under Products, Illustrations and the client for which the illustration is designed. If you have a special interest in, or further knowledge of the illustration or the customer, you are more than welcome to contact us.
