Louisiana poster with the work, Strandbred med Træ - Shore with Wood (1915), by 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.

But Jerichau was also interested in the landscape as a motif. Both at home and during his stays in Spain or as here in the South of France, where Jerichau was inspired by, among other things, the coast and the characteristic palm trees. 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 main figures in Danish art, not least Asger Jorn (1914-1973) and Per Kirkeby (1938-2018).
