Lot No. 1419

Manufacturer: Jens Jensen

Description: Jens Jensen (Denmark, Cincinnati, 1895 to 1978) oil on poster board of a starkly white nude with billowy clouds in the background. Jensen worked at Rookwood from about 1927 until 1948. He and wife Elizabeth Barrett moved to Ripley, Ohio at which time he produced an amazing body of work using inexpensive media such as poster board or newspaper. Shows at Frame House Gallery in Louisville and Clossons in Cincinnati finally gave Jensen some financial security and praise from the art community that he felt had neglected him for decades. Sight size of this work is 25 1/2 by 19 1/2 inches and overall size with new frame and liner is 36 1/2 by 30 1/2 inches. Excellent condition.

Estimate: $1,500.00 - $2,500.00
