IB ANDERSEN (1907-1969)

BYGGE OG BOLIG. 1929.


33x24 1/2 inches, 83 3/4x62 1/4 cm. Chr. Cato, [Copenhagen.]
Condition A-: minor repaired tears and creases at edges and in lower text. Framed.

For an exhibition of "Construction and Housing," Andersen shows us just that - a superb, architectural rendition of a room seen via a cut-away view. The artist's familiarity with the Avant-Garde movements of Europe is clearly on display, both in the near-Bauhausian backdrop of a black and white cityscape and in the tribute to De Stijl in the primary colors of the buildings and sky. Danish 72.
