Oil painting by Erik Gruno - 1978

Like this item and want one just like it? and we will contact you when something similar is available.

Erik Gruno (1916-2000) studied painting at the Danish Academy of Fine Arts and made his artistic debut at the annual Artists' Autumn Exhibition in 1943. As well as growing his career as an artist, he was head of the special school Søgårdsskolen, where he committed himself to working with children with learning difficulties to give them the opportunity to express their creativity and imagination.

The combination of vibrant planes of colour and the minimalistic approach to composition can be seen in several works by the artist. In this painting, vertical and horizontal lines connect the upper and lower margins of the painting, uniting the fields of colour. The combination of rich ochre hues convey a sense of warmth, optimism and joy, naturally drawing us closer to the painting to observe the canvas more closely. Upon closer viewing, traces of brush marks and layering show a loose and free application of paint that contrasts with the overall clearly defined structure.
