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 in Copenhagen under Viggo Johansen and was a member of The Thirteen 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.
