A very stylish abstract exhibition with art by Mogens Andersen.

Mogens Andersens arts are in high demand these day and it is easy to see why.

This poster was commissioned by The Danish Tourist Board to advertise an event in the Royal Danish Theatre in honur of August Bournonville. Bournonville (1805-1879) was a famous Danish ballet dancer, choreographer and ballet master.

Andersen was born in Copenhagen and studied painting in the 1930s. His early works were earthy-colored figure paintings but he was more interested in French Modernism. After the Second World War, he spent lengthy periods in Paris until 1965, where he was attracted by Abstract art. Thanks to his friendship with Pierre Soulages and Jean Bazaine, he developed a style of dark arabesques on a light background.

Andersen's first major work in Denmark was Abstract decoration in the Central Library on Kultorvet (1959) which caused considerable discussion but there was more solid appreciation of his later assignments, including the Bochum Museum of Art (1981) and Sejs-Svejbæk Church near Silkeborg (1990).
