Danish

The Danish painter, sculptor, lithographer and action artist Poul Gernes (1925-1996) began his career as a figurative painter, but from the late 1940s developed a more abstract and geometrically based visual idiom. The colourist nature of his works led to several decorative commissions, including the Palads Cinema in Copenhagen and KUNSTEN's café. In 1961 Gernes was involved in setting up Eks-skolen (an experimental school of art).
