Drews, Kai Jeppe (1884-1964)

Kai Jeppe Drews (aka Poul Ronne) was predominantly a landscape painter but also had a fascination for capturing the effects of light within a room. He seemed particularly drawn towards peaceful corners whereby light would cascade down a wall or across an item of furniture.

His interior scenes are quiet, subtle and devoid of people and I do wonder whether he was continually painting his own home. His landscapes are also modest and tend to include animals rather than figures.

Perhaps his choice of subject suggests a reclusive character often lost within his own imagination. The Danes have a strong reputation for gentle interior scenes and he’s certainly from very good stock indeed.
