Cobra was founded 1948 in Paris. Not many art movements have had such an important role in the development of art as COBRA, not only in Denmark, but also in Europe. The members of the art movement are still having a considerable influence that cannot be ignored. Asger Jorn has especially made his mark on COBRA both in Danish and international art. Jorn died 1973, at the age of 59, leaving behind not only thousands of paintings, but he also became a role model and a source of inspiration to many generations.
November 8, 1948. In the back of a café at Notre Dame Hotel in the heart of Paris, 6 non-Frenchmen founded COBRA: Jorn, Appel, Constant, Corneille, Noiret and Dotremont.
