Oil painting by Evgenij Klenø
Oil painting on canvas by Evgenij Klenø. Signed by the artist and dated '66.
Evgenji Klenø (1921 – 2005) was a Danish-Russian artist working in both graphic arts and as a painter. He began his career in Copenhagen, studying at Jacobine ‘Bizzie’ Høyer’s painting school up until the start of the Second World War. During the war, Klenø fled to Sweden, where he was taught by renowned Swedish painter, Isaac Grünewald. After the war ended, he joined the prestigious Royal Danish Academy of Arts, participating in a number of exhibitions in Denmark including ones held in Charlottenborg, Aarhus, and Taarnby.
Klenø spent much time living across Europe in the mid-twentieth century. In Paris, where he lived at the Danish Artist’s House with Richard Mortensen and Robert Jacobsen, he was affiliated with the Galerie Denise René, a space that has historically been dedicated to constructive and kinetic art. He also spent time living in Italy and Spain before moving back to France, where he lived until his death.
As with the other artwork by Klenø currently in stock, this painting shows a still life table scene, dated to 1966. Although the still life is often associated with the tradition’s emergence in the seventeenth century, its importance to mid-century and modernist art cannot be overestimated. With a palette to envy Paul Cézanne’s ‘Dish of Apples’, this painting exudes gentleness and subtlety.
