Preben Rasmussen, Danish ( 1919-?) Sacré Cœur 2, Paris

 

Oil on board, initialed lower right P.R.

Preben Rasmussen (1919 - 1970) Well-listed Danish Expressionist artist. Preber Rasmussen was only eleven years old when he began his painting career. During the course of his life, he made many trips throughout Europe concentrating on France, Italy and Switzerland. Many of his paintings depict Paris, especially Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. Like Camille Pissarro, he regularly painted the same scenes at different times of the day in order to create the diversity of light and darkness as the day progressed.

The inspiration he received from Van Gogh and Gauguin is apparent from the swirling colors and strong contrast between darkness and light. The use of a very thick palette helps to emphasise the moody atmosphere conveyed by his paintings
