Mortensen (1910-1993) was a Danish painter and professor at the Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. He was considered a pioneer of abstract painting in Denmark co-founding the group Linien in 1934 which introduced abstraction into a country dominated by the romantic-style 19th-century Skagen group of painters. When a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen his style was influenced by the works of Wassily Kandisky and surrealism.
This silkscreen print is a good representation of his style and features layered coloured lines balanced against darker and more heavy marks. The image manages to playfully convey both movement and friction between all composite elements. Comes in this frame, but could be re-framed on request, or sent without frame.
