Oil painting by Knud Hansen - 1987

Knud Hansen (1936-1988) was a Danish painter and graphic artist. Educated at both the Funen and Copenhagen art academies, the artist went on to exhibit widely throughout Denmark and Europe. His body of art is now well represented, with works held in the Statens Museum for Art, Vejle Art Museum and Trapholt, Kolding.

This oil on board is an example of the artist’s strength in graphic arts. It brings together precise line work, bold blocks of colour and minimal forms to make a striking visual statement. The artist often used repetition in a number of his works and in this painting the technique creates the effect of movement. The repeated red and yellow figures in particular convey this sense of animation. Hansen worked with a range of subject matter and styles, including depicting nature or producing abstract paintings, but it was urban life and its people who he frequently chose to represent.
