Carlo Hornung Jensen, Woodland With Distant View

Carlo Hornung Jensen, Woodland With Distant View

Midsummer, the heat punctuated by a light breeze as the artist sketches from a woodland clearing. He knew this area well, he’s walked this way before. Beech trees line the right and guide the eye towards a cloud-covered horizon. While a single fir brings balance to the composition.

This picturesque view of nature by Danish artist, Carlo Hornung Jensen (1882-1960), puts you at ease. It’s disarming in its tranquillity.

Housed within a later frame and signed.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
