About

Signed lower right, 'Helge' for Helge Jensen (Danish, 1899 - 1986) and painted circa 1925. This notable Post-Impressionist first studied with Harald Giersing (1915-1916) before working as a porcelain painter at the Kähler ceramics factory in Næstved (1917-1935). Jensen exhibited widely and with success, first at the annual Artists’ Exhibition (Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling) in 1917, where he continued to show until 1931. In 1932, he exhibited as a guest at the Grønningen and, as a full member of the group, from 1936. Other solo exhibitions include the Art Society, Copenhagen (1935). Jensen also participated in several exhibitions outside of Denmark, including Germany (1932), Oslo (1935), Budapest (1936), Gothenburg (1939, 1943) and Stockholm (1943). Jensen's ceramics have been exhibited internationally including in Madrid, Berlin, Stockholm and the United States. A frequent visitor to Paris, Jensen also traveled to Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. In 1937, he was awarded the Academy Scholarship which allowed him to travel and study in Italy and, in 1939, the Carlsberg Foundation Scholarship which extended his studies in Italy and also allowed him to study the sources of Classicism in Greece. Examples of Helge Jensen’s painting and ceramics are held in numerous museums including in the permanent collection of Copenhagen's National Museum of Art.
