The Charlottenborg Palace was constructed in 1672-83 in Dutch Baroque style for Ulrik Frederik Gyldenlve. Queen Dowager Charlotte Amalie bought the palace in 1700 and gave it its present name. The main building facing Kongens Nytorv was built in 1827 by C.F. Hansen, and contains the Fest and Antiksalen Halls. Charlottenborg is home to the Royal Danish Academy of Art, as well as a library with a big collection of literature on art. First and foremost, this is the place for new and established artists to have their exhibitions. Charlottenborg is famous for its spring show, Forårsudstilling, an open, censored exhibition of work in painting, crafts and architecture. Anybody can send in their work and a small committee of Danish artists then chooses the work that will be exhibited. Admission is free on Wednesdays.
