Oil painting by Kai E. Christiansen no. 1

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

Kai E. Christiansen (1910-1975) was a Danish painter who predominantly worked with oil paints. Whilst known largely as a landscape artist, Christiansen also produced paintings like this one, depicting intimate portraits of others. The titular ‘mother and child’ in this piece are largely obscured; typical of Christiansen’s work, his subject is subject to a soft blurring that makes it hard to fully make out what he is choosing to show us. Yet, this in turn is responsible for the intimacy in Christiansen’s pieces, in their soft, gentle, and familiar nature.
