Exhibition poster with work by the Danish artist, Richard Mortensen (1910-1993), from the exhibition in Louisiana in 1970. Mortensen is among the most important Danish artists of the 20th century and the Louisiana exhibition showed his efforts for the 20th century non-figurative art from the early 50s up to his 60th birthday in 1970—the same year as the exhibition.

Richard Mortensen had a decisive influence on the development of abstract painting in Denmark and also worked with graphics. In 1933-34 he formed the abstract-surrealist group, Linien, together with Ejler Bille and Vilhelm Bjerke Petersen, who were instrumental in introducing surrealism to Denmark.

In 1947, Richard Mortensen traveled to Paris together with the sculptor Robert Jacobsen, where at the Parisian Gallerie Denise René, together with a number of other artists, they revolved around a constructivist, abstract expression. The later works are, among other things, inspired by Zen Buddhism.

Richard Morten received several honors for his art.
