Impressive Jungle Painting by Hans Scherfig (b1905-79)
Large scale work by the Danish born Hans Scherfig. Scherfig is well known in Scandinavia for both his writings and paintings. The lush jungle, represented by a myriad of foliage, is interspersed with a variety of denizens, including monkeys, snakes, many types of insects, a pair of anteaters... Scherfig seems to have a particular reverance for the rhinocerous, appearing here as it often does shrouded in a near mystic aura of blue light radiating about it, demarcating it fully from its surroundings. A lovely work showing many of the repeated themes of Scherfig´s artistic career, it has been recently reframed.
