Jorgen Sorensen

Jørgen Sørensen (1854-1895) was a Norwegian painter. He suffered a hip injury at the age of seven, which led to difficulty walking and no regular school attendance. But his older brother helped him get an artistic education, and he joined the circle of friends around Edvard Munch. Sørensen was particularly interested in landscape painting and preferred to paint simple autumn and gray weather atmospheres with a fine and careful tone and a reverence for nature. His breakthrough came with the Modums pictures, and he also painted light-filled summer landscapes after his first trip to Paris. Sørensen avoided grandiose subjects and preferred to paint winter landscapes, where he mastered the painterly problems of taking care of all the color values ​​that the Impressionists discovered in the snow. He was an industrious artist and left behind a large output, some of his best works being filled with a wealth of painterly detail. As a human being, he received a rare beautiful legacy.
