About artist: Ludvig Jacobsen, also known as Carl Gustav Ludvig Jacobsen, first studied at Copenhagen's Technical School, working initially as a book-illustrator and, subsequently, as a fashion designer. He was strongly influenced by the French Romantic movement, particularly by Delacroix whose work he had studied in Paris. From Delacroix, Jacobsen derived his elegant compositional sense, as well as a preference for a hot and, often, saturated palette. He was also an admirer of Rubens, Watteau, and Corot- all artists notable for considering color rather than line as the foundational element in their work. This was also very much the case with Jacobsen, whose bold and energetic, yet softly-contoured, figural works exemplify this quality of his painting. He continued to travel widely, including to Berlin and Dresden (1923), France and Spain (1929), Mallorca (1933) and again to France (1937). He exhibited widely and with success, including at the Paris Salon (1928-29) and frequently at the Charlottenborg. Jacobsen was a recipient of the Serdin Hansens Prize (1921), the 1923 scholarships from both the Royal Academy and Raben-Levetzau as well as the 1929 Benzon scholarship. Jacobsen's works may be found in the permanent collections of museums throughout Denmark and in many prominent public and private collections. He is well regarded for his figural paintings and we are pleased to offer this lyrical treatment of a rare mythological subject, dating to circa 1925. Reference: Weilbach, Dansk Kunstnerleksikon; E.
