- Curator's comments
- Text from Frances Carey, 'Modern Scandinavian Prints', BM 1997, no.93:
Early in 1947 Jorn organised an exhibition of Danish avant-garde painting and sculpture which was meant to travel to a number of venues in Scandinavia but for financial reasons was shown only in Oslo and Gothenburg. The image reproduced here was the second design made by Jorn for the catalogue cover, which was printed by Sørensen and published in an edition of 500 by the Tokanten Gallery in Copenhagen.
According to a loan request from the Hayward Gallery, 2002, the image on the cover was also used by Jorn in a collaborative work with the poet Christian Dotremont in 1949.
