ASGER JORN (DENMARK, 1914–73)

Asger Jorn was a Danish painter, sculptor, ceramic artist and author. He was the co-founder of the avant-garde movement CoBra, alongside Karel Appel.

In 1964, Jorn was awarded a Guggenheim Award, including a generous cash prize, by an international jury assembled by Lawrence Alloway.
