U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Bernstein and Art in Embassies Program

U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Stuart A. Bernstein and Mrs. Bernstein and Lichtenstein paintings, 2002

U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Stuart A. Bernstein: "True art ignites common human interests and goals among people of all ages and cultures. At Rydhave, it is our hope that the presence of first-class paintings and sculpture will serve to further strengthen the longstanding friendship between our two great countries."

The U.S. Department of State Art in Embassies Program (AIEP) was created to promote national pride and a sense of the distinct cultural identity of America's art and its artists. This innovative program traverses cultural and language barriers by providing original works of art by U.S. citizens for the representational rooms of U.S. ambassadorial residences worldwide. Currently, works of Roy Lichtenstein are being exhibited in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Pictured are Ambassador Bernstein and Mrs. Bernstein at Rydhave, their official residence in Copenhagen. They are sitting in front of two works of art by Roy Lichtenstein. The work on the left is entitled Reflections on Sure!? and the work on the right is entitled Reflections on Blonde.

Released September 17, 2002.
