Born in Copenhagen in 1895, Mogens Vantore first studied with his father, the notable Danish artist, Hans Christian Hansen. He continued his studies at the Charlottenberg Art Academy, to which he was admitted at the unusually young age of 14 and in Paris where he was influenced by the Post-Impressionists, particularly by Gauguin and the Nabis. After his return to Denmark, he continued to exhibit successfully in Paris while also exhibiting annually at Copenhagen’s Charlottenberg Museum. His style is characterized by bravura brushwork, a saturated palette, innovative perspective and a compositional structure that imparts vivacity to his carefully-observed subjects.  Mogens Vantore achieved both academic and commercial success in his lifetime. He is well-listed in all relevant art-reference works and his paintings may be found in the permanent collections of museums worldwide.
