BATHERS AT THE BEACH
Oil on Canvas
14½ x 18½ Inches
Signed Lower Right
A fine, early 20th century, panoramic ocean scene showing a view of two young women paddling on the shore. Holst combines bravura brushwork with an elegant primary palette. Holst studied at the Art Academy in Copenhagen under Viggo Johansen and was a member of The Thirteen from 1909-1910. The artist exhibited early in his career but later avoided the spotlight to paint exclusively for the sake of experimentation and expression. While later works focused on abstraction, the artist is also known for his caricature renderings of prominent Sorø citizens.
Young Artists Conn. 1909 1912; KE 1911-14, 1916-17.
