Born in 1902, Theodor Hagedorn-Olsen first studied in Copenhagen with Carl Thorpe (1923-24) and, subsequently, with Othon Friesz in Paris (1924-25). He then furthered his education in Arles at the time Monet was completing his series of water-lilies, subsequently returning to Copenhagen where he attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts for a further three years (1926-29). He later continued his travels and education in Spain and Italy. An early European exponent of Modernist theory, Hagedorn-Olsen is particularly known for monumental and sculptural works, dramatically composed and executed in a palette of saturated, complementary colors. The artist is well-listed in all relevant biographical dictionaries and his work may be found in the permanent collections of numerous public museums. We are pleased to offer an exceptional figural study by this notable Post-Impressionist painter.
