For the first time the work of two influential 20th century artists Jackson Pollock and Asger Jorn is compared side by side in an exhibition at the Louisiana.
Pollock was a leading figure in America's abstract expressionist movement while the Danish Jorn was a painter, sculptor, ceramic artist, and author, and founding member of the avant-garde movement CoBrA.
Although the two artists were contemporaries of each other, they never met. Both artists were influenced by European avant-gardists, in particular Pablo Picasso, and were inspired by working methods used by the surrealist movement.
This exhibition also focuses on trends in expressionist painting from 1943-1963, the period between the war years and the emergence of Pop Art.
