Jerichau, a unique figure in the history of modern Danish art is the focus of this year's final Louisiana exhibition. In spite of his short and tragic life, Jens Adolf Jerichau still managed to leave behind an inspiring legacy, which plays an important part in the shaping of modern art.
J.A. Jerichau (1890-1916) is a unique figure in the history of Danish art who despite a brief career was able to create a very significant and intense oeuvre. He became an inspiration to later generations of Danish painters, not least the two central figures Asger Jorn (1914-1973) and Per Kirkeby (1938-2018).
