About

Early twentieth-century oil still-life of yellow and vermilion flowers shown informally arranged in a pale coral pitcher decorated with a pattern of jade leaves and contrasted against an aqua-blue background. Initialed lower right, "K.L." for Karl Larsen (Danish, 1897-1977), painted circa 1925 and with label verso bearing artist's name and title, 'Blomster'. From 1917, Karl Larsen participated in numerous exhibitions in France and Denmark including the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition (1919-20), the Salon d'Automne in Paris (1922) and the Scandinavian-French exhibition at Maison Watteau, Paris (1923). Larsen's name is strongly linked with the avant-garde group, 'The Four', and represented the cutting-edge of Danish Modernism in the early 20th century, introducing the principles of Post-Impressionism to Denmark through his example and teaching. With the help of scholarships, (Stoltenberg, 1921; Zach and Jacobsen, 1924), Larsen remained in Paris, studying and painting from 1923-27. In 1926, he received the Academy Fellowship and, in 1929, he was awarded the Vilhelm Pacht studio apartment for life. This enabled him to continue painting without concern for public approval. In his later years, Larsen was also sought after as a portrait painter. Additionally, he mastered and taught various diverse media, including sculpture, graphics, marquetry, mosaic and stained glass. Karl Larsen is among the most celebrated of Denmark's early Modernists and he is well listed in all relevant art reference works including Thieme-Becker and Benezit. His work may be found in the permanent collections of numerous national museums including the National Museum of Art, The Museum of Art and Design and the National Gallery in Oslo. Reference: E.
