ABSTRACT OIL ON CANVAS
BY HELGE ERNST Sold
Helge Ernst (1916-1991) was a Danish painter, designer and filmmaker. Mostly a self-taught artist, although in 1938 he was briefly trained in Paris by the French sculptor, painter and writer André Lhote (1885-1962).
Ernst, like many painters of that era, started as a landscape and figurative painter, but as from the beginning of the 50’s his work became more and more abstract.
This wonderful oil on canvas is one of the ‘billede’ series, created between 1952 and 1956. Signed HE.
