  • Description
  • Specifications
Louisiana poster with the work, Blooming Poppies (1912), by the painter, Jens Adolf Jerichau, (1890-1916). Jerichau was only 25 years old, but despite his short career he managed to leave a significant mark on Danish painting and became a clear inspiration for later generations of Danish painters.

Jerichau's pictures are often full of spontaneity and expressionistic wildness. He is particularly known for his large compositions, often with figures taken from the Bible and art history.

But Jerichau was also interested in the landscape as a motif. Both during his stays in Spain and the South of France—or as here, where domestic poppies are in focus. Jericha's landscape pictures were a breakthrough in Danish painting with their strong simplification of the motif and the pure colors.

Although Jerichau was only an active painter for a short number of years, he became a clear inspiration for later major figures in Danish art, not least Asger Jorn (1914-1973) and Per Kirkeby (1938-2018).
