Danish artist Herman Jensen is predominantly known as a painter of spirited landscapes, figures and quiet interior scenes. He trained in Paris and is considered to be an important member of the ‘Bonholm School’ of artists.
His works, particularly his plein-air views, often blend the confident rhythm of French expressionism with the cool mood of his homeland. He’s represented at the Met, New York, with ‘the Violinist’.
