Jorgen Hansen - Man Holding Dove in the Company of His Shadow

$ 2,500
  • Description
    A mysterious painting, and all the more enthralling for it. Is the veiled figure standing behind the man his Jungian shadow? What does the dove represent? In a very good way we are reminded of the cast of characters belonging to Picasso's Blue Period, but updated to the angst of the mid-century, and suffused with a beautiful melancholy. Hansen's Blues Period.

    Oil on board measures 29 3/4" x48", frame 35" x 51". Excellent condition,
