Carl Jensen (1887-1961)

Carl Jensen drew, even before he reached the age of 20, to today's leading writings magazine Klods-Hans. From 1905 to 1958, except for the years 1918-20, he was a regular subscriber to Copenhagen newspapers. In the same way as colleagues and friends like Aksel Jørgensen and Axel Nygaard, he originally cultivated the social trend. Later, after his connection with Politiken in 1921, lasting for almost 40 years, he became a more cross-political satire trainer, but long with a clear reluctance towards the civil wing, especially the Left Party. Characteristic is the long series of close-up caricatures of Prime Minister Niels Neergaard and Minister of the Interior Oluf Krag before the election in 1924, with the long Niels Neergaard and the little close Oluf Krag, a paraphrase of the first Fy and Bi film, Our Friends Winter, 1923. In For a number of years, J. delivered "Today's image" to Politiken. In addition to the political satire, J. performed report drawings, including from courtroom where photography was not allowed, and as in the 1920s, one of the few remaining areas was where newspaper reports had not had to go away for the press photographers. Inspired by Honoré Daumier and, in particular, Jean-Louis Forain's drawings from the French courtroom, covered the J. Landmann Bank case in 1923. Among his many cartoons are his drawings of a number of artist friends from 1909-20, published in Ekstra Bladet, and numerous portrait drawings in the Politics of Danish And foreign personalities visiting Denmark. Together, J.'s drawings give a full picture of Danish cultural and social life in almost the entire first half of the 20th century. Originally, J. was strongly inspired by foreign models, in particular the characters of today's leading satire magazine Simplicissimus. Gradually, he found his own style, characterized by fast, clear lines, with which he in a cool, unentimental way attached the changing expressions of the models and characteristic movements to the paper. At the beginning of World War I, J. was a painter to introduce Cubism in Denmark. He left his position as drawing on Ekstra Bladet, moved in 1918 to Tisvilde as a neighbor of his friend, William Scharff, and became one of Denmark's most important cubists. Around 1920, J. began to paint watercolor and gouache, partly landscapes, and partly Copenhagen port and canal images. J. rarely managed to use the options of the newspaper and newspaper. In his book illustrations, he utilized with insight and discipline the special means that modern reproduction technology enabled.
