Opus 7 no. 5

Richard Mortensen created a series of numbered paintings entitled Opus, which means "work" and is often used to describe pieces of music. The work is rigidly composed and belongs to his concrete abstract works, in which the focus is on shapes, lines and colours. Richard Mortensen discovered this style, when he and Robert Jacobsen moved to Paris in 1947. In this picture, one especially notices the colours and the black diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines, which create movement and dynamics.
