  • Description
  • Specifications
Louisiana poster with the work, The Coming of Spring (1915), 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 full of spontaneity and expressionistic wildness. He is particularly known for his large compositions, often with figures taken from the Bible and art history.

The Coming of Spring is concretely connected to Jerichau's interest in both the Renaissance and antiquity, as models for the artistic, spiritual and sexual freedom Jerichau strove for.

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