Louisiana poster with the work, Untitled, (1930), by the Danish artist, Franciska Clausen (1899-1985). The work here became part of Louisiana's collection following a generous donation of Constructivist art from the American McCrory Collection. The donation followed in the years after Louisiana in 1978 exhibited McCrory's collection – the only known overview of the art form at the time.
Franciska Clausen was among the first artists to introduce constructivism in Denmark in the 1930s, together with Robert Jacobsen and Richard Mortensen, among others.
Constructivism has its roots in Russia, where the avant-garde wanted to renew the artistic idiom after the Russian Revolution. With their art, the Constructivists joined the break that emerged politically and socially. The artist, like the engineer and the scientist, had to build a new and better world.
The style had a geometric starting point. The expression had to be rational, objective and useful. Constructivists distance themselves from any depiction of the seen, the emotional and spontaneous, and instead create their own reality.
Parallel to the development of constructivism in Russia, the constructivist idiom was experimented with in Europe. The Dutch artist group de Stijl and the Bauhaus school in Germany found inspiration in the Russian Constructivists.
