The Danish artist Robert Jacobsen (1912-1993) is best known for his abstract iron sculptures, but he also created glass art, paintings, graphics and sculptures in wood and stone. Throughout his career he moved between a purely abstract, concrete idiom and something more playful, imaginative and narrative. The latter applies particularly to his series of "dolls", which were inspired by his collection of African art. He also undertook several major decorative commissions, including Axeltorv Square in Copenhagen.
