20th-Century Danish School, Urban Scene With Figures

20th-Century Danish School, Urban Scene With Figures

The back streets of urban Denmark. Strong vertical forms dominate the view - rendered buildings frame the composition. Two figures look towards a third, what’s he doing? Heading home? Gesticulating? A burglar?

This vibrant city view dates to around 1930 and it’s a good example of Danish modernism. Perfect for a mid-century home.

Housed within a period frame.
