The portrait on the face of the banknote is of Pauline Tutein, née Rath, who was married to the merchant Peter Tutein. The portrait was painted by Jens Juel (1745-1802). The watermark on the 20-krone banknote differs from that on the other banknotes in the 1972 series, in that it shows a palette with brushes.
The sparrows on the reverse were reproduced from a drawing by Danmarks Nationalbank's illustrator at the time, Gunnar Andersen (1919-1981).
Size: 125 x 72 mm.
The 20-krone banknote was issued on 11 March 1980 and has been withdrawn since 10 April 1990, when it was replaced by a coin.

Banknotes of Denmark, 1972 series
The 1972 series was issued from 1974 to 1995. Only the 100-krone banknote in this series was issued in a revised version, called the 1972 series, in 1995, in order to enhance protection against counterfeiting. The faces of the banknotes show paintings by the well-known Danish artist Jens Juel (1745-1802). The reverse motifs are animals drawn by Ib Andersen, Johannes Larsen and Gunnar Andersen.
