Jens Adolf Jerichau died at the age of 25 in 1916, but his short career proved a major influence on later Danish painters such as Asger Jorn and Per Kirkeby. He was friendly with the likes of Picasso during his time in Paris, but above all Jerichau measured himself against the Old Masters, transcribing large-scale mythical or biblical scenes in a haunted, Munch-like modernist idiom. This show at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk (28 October–6 March 2022) is his largest survey today, and combines Jerichau’s Old Master studies with landscapes and interior scenes.
