'Venice, the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge', Danish Post-Impressionist oil

1989

US$4,500

About

Signed lower right, "Hagedorn-Olsen" for Theodor Hagedorn-Olsen (Danish, 1902-1996) and painted in 1989. Formerly in the collection of the Johannes Larsen Museum, Norway (label verso). A bright Post-Impressionist oil showing an expansive view of the Grand Canal beneath a clouded blue sky with a gondola passing beneath the Rialto Bridge and bright sunshine reflecting off distant buildings. A scintillating late work by this Danish master. Theodor Hagedorn-Olsen first studied in Copenhagen with Carl Thorpe (1923-24) and, subsequently, with Othon Friesz in Paris (1924-25). He furthered his art studies in Arles at the time Monet was completing his series of water-lilies before returning to Copenhagen where he attended the Royal Danish Academy for a further three years (1926-29). He later continued his travels and education on extended painting trips to Spain and Italy. An early European exponent of Modernist color theory, Hagedorn-Olsen is known particularly for his monumental and sculpturally-derived figural works, dramatically composed and executed in a palette of saturated, complementary colors. Hagedorn-Olsen is well-listed in art biographical dictionaries, including Benezit and Weilbach, and his work may be found in the permanent collections of numerous public museums. Reference: Benezit Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs, Vol.6 p.664; Weilbach, Dansk Kunstnerleksikon; KE 1930-32; Charleville. Spring 1932; Freedom of issuance. 1933-34, 1936-44, 1946, 1952, 1954-56, 1960, 1964, 1966-73, 1976; et al.
