Asger Jorn Art

Danish, 1914-1973

Asger Jorn was a Danish painter, sculptor, ceramic artist and author. He was the co-founder of the avant-garde movement CoBra, alongside Karel Appel. Jorn was a painter, but also a printmaker and realized lithographs and etchings. From 1937–42, he studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. His first American solo exhibition was at the Lefebre Gallery in 1962. In 1964, Jorn was awarded a Guggenheim Award, including a generous cash prize, by an international jury assembled by Lawrence Alloway. During his artistic career, Jorn produced over 2,500 paintings, prints, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, artist's books, collages, décollages and collaborative tapestries. Jorn died in Aarhus, Denmark, on 1st May 1973.
