Oil painting by Henri Clausen

Henri Clausen was born in Copenhagen in 1909. Relatively little is known about his life beyond that he continued to work in Denmark throughout his career.

However, from the paintings he left behind, much can be garnered about his view of the world. A number of his pieces, including this one which is titled ‘Marrakech’, seem to take inspiration from cities, towns, and places abroad, such as those previously auctioned named after the likes of ‘Mallorca’, ‘Ohio’, and ‘Venice’. Clausen seems fascinated by the shapes and contours of landscapes, such as in this painting here but also in pieces that take the Swiss mountains as their subject. His pieces are expressed through a style that evokes the vividness and vivacity of Fauvism as well as the geometric intensity of Cubism, which is seen particularly in his still life paintings. 

In this painting, the soft, haziness of the brushstrokes is contrasted with the rocky landscape it depicts. Clausen’s use of colour is a constant throughout his work, but the contrast between the darker and lighter shades is particularly striking here.
