The Charlottenborg palace was constructed in 1672-83 in Dutch Baroque style, for Ulrik Frederik Gyldenløve. Queen Dowager Charlotte Amalie, bought the palace in 1700 and named it. 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. The autumn exhibition, Efterårsudstillingen, on the other hand shows work only by invited artists.
