Vilhelm Lundstrøm

The epitome of good taste

Vil­helm Lund­strøm (1893-1950) is one of the most fa­mous and beloved Dan­ish painters of the 20th cen­tury. He began by shak­ing up bour­geois taste with his ex­pres­sive, flam­boy­ant style. Later, Lund­strøm cap­tured the mod­ern spirit with his sim­ple still lifes of jugs and fruit, and fe­male mod­els on blue back­grounds. De­sign­ers such as Poul Hen­ningsen and Finn Juhl were in­spired by Lund­strøm. They all dreamed of a bet­ter world through sim­ple lines and func­tional forms. The ex­hi­bi­tion tells a story of Lund­strøm and Dan­ish de­sign. At the ex­hi­bi­tion, we recre­ate a num­ber of his­toric in­te­ri­ors with fur­ni­ture and paint­ings that are mod­ern icons today. The ex­hi­bi­tion can be seen at Brandts - Museum for Kunst & Visuel Kultur in Odensen. It has been cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Kun­sten – Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art in Aal­borg - where it can be seen 15.9.2017 to 25.2.2018
