Erik Nitsche: Sparkling Construction Sculpture
Modern Danish architectural design has earned its reputation for public housing, educational and civic buildings. The rather unassuming Danish style has emphasized craftsmanlike attention to detail and quality. Directly influenced by the pre-Nazi German Expressionism movement, Danish designers found that designing without the need for linear surfaces gave them a greater freedom. And, after the end of World War II, American Abstract Expressionism made a lasting impact on Danish design -- particularly in its sculpture. One of the most notable exponents of Danish Abstract Expressionism was the sculptor Robert Jacobsen. His work, Sparkling Construction, is portrayed in this artwork. After settling in post-War Paris, he began experimenting with welded iron, which proved to be the ideal material for his concepts of exploring space and structure. As a result, his work in welded abstract sculpture has won him a major international reputation.
