The exhibition shows more that 250 portraits and drawings of famous as well as less known persons. The drawings have been published in newspapers and magazines and some have almost turned into official portraits as for example the drawing of Søren Kirkegaard by P.C. Klæstrup from 1846.
The Royal Library has used the occasion to celebrate the Queen's 70th birthday with a special exhibition of her portraits and portraits of her family.
The exhibition runs till 4 December 2010.
