About

Signed lower left, 'Mogens Hertz' (Danish, 1909-1999) and painted circa 1955. This Danish Impressionist artist first studied with the classically-trained Academician, Laurits Ring and, subsequently, with the notable Danish photographer and Impressionist painter, Rostrup Boyesen. After an influential study trip to Paris in 1930, Hertz continued his formal studies at the Charlottenborg Academy before moving from Copenhagen to the idyllic countryside outside Gudhjem. There, he became a founding, and leading, member of the Bornholm School and his work came to exemplify the group's lyrical portrayal of landscapes, painted in a loose and painterly, Impressionist style that can often border on abstraction. From 1930-1941, Hertz traveled and studied widely, including in France, Holland, German, Norway and Sweden. He was the recipient of numerous prizes and juried awards including the August Schiøtt scholarship (1948) and the Frederik Sødring prize (1939). He also exhibited widely and with success including, for many years, at the Royal Danish Academy's Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition (from 1937), Sweden (1980), Bornholm Art Museum (1985) and the Vejen Art Museum (1983). Mogens Hertz is well-listed in art biographical reference works including Benezit. We are pleased to offer a characteristically lyrical view of the picturesque Bornholm coast by this noted Danish Modernist. Reference: E.
