About

Signed lower left "Vantore" for Mogens Erik Christien Vantore (Danish, 1895-1977) and painted circa 1925. A substantial, early twentieth-century Impressionist still-life of blue asters growing in a terracotta pot beside a porcelain chocolate kettle and a lemon arranged on a table. A subtle colorist work of deceptive simplicity by this well-listed Danish Post-Impressionist painter Born in Copenhagen in 1895, Mogens Vantore first studied with his father, the pioneering Impressionist, Hans Christian Hansen. He continued his studies at the Charlottenborg Art Academy, to which he was admitted at the unusually young age of 14. Vantore subsequently studied in Paris (1923-25) where he came under the influence of the Post-Impressionists, particularly Derain, Gauguin and the Nabis. Returning to Denmark, he continued to exhibit successfully in Paris while commencing to exhibit annually from 1922 to 1947 at Copenhagen’s Charlottenborg Museum. In 1930, he was awarded the Akademie scholarship which enabled him to live and paint while traveling throughout Europe for two years. Over the course of a long career, Vantore exhibited widely and with success and was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards. His paintings may be found in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. His style is characterized by bravura brushwork, a saturated palette, innovative perspective and a compositional structure that imparts vivacity to his carefully-observed subjects.
