Portugal, by the world-famous Danish painter, Per Kirkeby (1938-2018), which is richly represented in Louisiana and forms one of the focal points of the museum's collection. The work is from 2008 and displays a painterly intensity, which once again testifies to the artist's ability to renew his work and at the same time maintain a fundamental painterly commitment.
No other Danish artist in the 20th century – perhaps with the exception of Asger Jorn – has explored the geography of art as widely and deeply as Per Kirkeby.
With his background as a trained geologist and later as a central member of the Danish artist group, Eks-skolen, Kirkeby has created an impressive body of work that covers virtually all genres: Poetry, writing, film, scenography, architecture, painting, sculpture and graphics.
The international recognition is indisputable – both in the wider art world and among artist colleagues, where Kirkeby appears in many respects today as an artist's artist.
Louisiana has previously – among other things with the exhibition of the artist's early pop art-inspired works on masonite in 2002 – exhibited Kirkeby to the Danish public, and a number of the artist's larger works are almost permanently exhibited in the museum's collection.
