Oil painting on canvas by Ernst Rasmussen (1912-1964).

Rasmussen studied painting at the Copenhagen Technical School, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen (1934-1938) and under Elof Christian Risebye (1892-1961) at his private painting school.

After WWII, Rasmussen moved to Paris where he ran a small studio near Place du Terte and painted under the name 'Jean Le Van'. In 1946, Rasmussen married the Spanish artist Carmen Lillian Cervera (b.1918) and they purchased a house in Vallauris (near Cannes) where their next door neighbour was Pablo Picasso. They became great friends and Picasso painted several portraits of their daughter (Pia) while living there.
