The story behind


Erling Jørgensen, 1905-1977, Danish painter and graphic artist. Jørgensen was self-taught and first painted in a naturalistic style, but inspired by the Cobra painters, i.a. Svavar Guðnason, he gradually developed a fabled abstract form of expression. This can be seen, for example, in his contribution to the decoration of Bregnerødhytten (1949, now Sophienholm) and Maleri (1966, North Jutland Art Museum). Jørgensen was a co-founder and member of Spiralen from 1947, of PRO 1964-66 and of Koloristerne from 1967. He received the Eckersberg Medal in 1970.
