The story behind

The artist Richard Mortensen (1910-1993) expressed himself in painting and graphics. In 1933-34, he formed Linien together with Ejler Bille and Vilhelm Bjerke Petersen, who were instrumental in introducing surrealism in Denmark. In 1947 he traveled with the sculptor Robert Jacobsen to Paris, where they, at the Parisian Gallery Denise René, together with a number of other artists, revolved around a constructivist, abstract expression. The later works are i.a. inspired by Zen Buddhism. Mortensen is one of the most important Danish artists of the 20th century and has received several honors.
