Danish painter, født 1916 – d. 2008 Denmark

My first painting and personal meeting with him took place in 1992, the more fascinating it is to his art still pointing forward. No wonder that many artists have benefited from his teaching at the art academy in more than 20 year.

A meeting with his art can become a landmark for the art lover. Here goes a line back to the famous Harvest Show in 1948, where he exhibited with many of the Cobra artists. But the line is not predictable, it's Knud Nielsen line. Call it abstract expressionism with the signature Knud N. It is said about his paintings, that you sense the saxophone in the background, one of the artist's great passions.

His paintings and gouaches are intense and saturated color – often with a spark of violence, but made only the experienced artist, which controls and determines the colors and canvas, master it.
