Kunstnernes: A Danish poster by Jais Nielsen, 1917. This is an advertisement for "Kunstnernes Efteraarsudstilling," a juried art exhibition that has been held in Copenhagen since 1915.
Jais Nielsen (1885-1961) was born in Copenhagen and first exhibited his paintings at the Autumn Salon of 1907. His work, inspired by the French "Fauvists," was characterized by simplified human forms and vivid use of color. He was the only Danish artist represented at the important 1986 Futurist exhibition, "Futurismo & Futurismi," in Venice, Italy.
