A documentary about an important collection of works by French Impressionist painters acquired in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified and left penniless as a result. Then, something remarkable happened.

A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists.

Among them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen. It was an extraordinary moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue and subterfuge.
