Theodor Hagedorn-Olsen first studied in Copenhagen with Carl Thorpe (1923-24) and, subsequently, with Othon Friesz in Paris (1924-25). He furthered his art studies in Arles at the time Monet was completing his series of water-lilies before 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 and 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. Painted circa 1925, this early and exceptionally fine, Modernist figural study exemplifies the work of this notable Post-Impressionist painter.
