Harald Giersing

Born in Copenhagen, 24 April 1881; died in Valdal, 15 Jan 1927). Danish painter and teacher. He studied in Copenhagen at the Kongelige Danske Akademi for de Skønne Kunster (1900-04) and at Kristian Zahrtmann's art school (1904-6). In 1906-1907 he visited Paris, where his experience of Impressionism and Expressionism was to have a lasting influence on his style, and on that of a generation of Danish artists through his ten years of teaching in the art school he founded in Copenhagen in 1917. In his paintings he united simplicity of composition and an individual use of colour that reflected his study of light. He was also influenced by the pointillist technique of the Neo-Impressionists, for example in a number of works painted in 1907-8, such as Portrait of the Artist's Father (Copenhagen, Stat. Mus. Kst). Subsequently his style was influenced by the work of Matisse, and he approached the monumental in his use of a broad, dark outline. In such paintings as Football Players: Sophus Heading (1917; see fig.), Cubist spatial qualities are combined with the dynamism of Futurism. Source:
