In 1971, Asger Jorn (1914-1973) and the printer Peter Bramsen printed 16 colour woodcuts at the latter’s workshop Clot, Bramsen et Georges in Paris. The prints clearly recall elements from the Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch’s (1883-1944) experiments with woodcuts where the motif is built up in the manner of a puzzle using printing plates plates cut to size.
The wood structure forms striking patterns and, together with a varying intensity of colour, it adds a certain depth and texture to the images.
The print was released in 1973 shortly after Jorn’s death as a ‘COBRA portfolio’ with other prints by Egil Jacobsen, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, and others
”The great artwork is a perfection of banality and the shortcoming of most banalities is their not being sufficiently banal.„
