good taste

Vilhelm Lundstrøm

May 10, 2017

A quick reportage from the excellent and beautiful exhibition “Vilhelm Lundstrøm – The Epitome of Good Taste“ (Vilhelm Lundstrøm og den gode smag). Lower East designed the book for the exhibition, a damn fine book, and almost 300 pages. Go, check out  the ‘epitome of good taste’ yourself, and buy the book of course.

From the museums website: “Vilhelm Lundstrøm (1893-1950) is one of the most famous and beloved Danish painters of the 20th century. He began by shaking up bourgeois taste with his expressive, flamboyant style. Later, Lundstrøm captured the modern spirit with his simple still lifes of jugs and fruit, and female models on blue backgrounds. Designers such as Poul Henningsen and Finn Juhl were inspired by Lundstrøm. They all dreamed of a better world through simple lines and functional forms. The exhibition tells a story of Lundstrøm and Danish design.“

The exhibition is collaboration between Brandts, Museum for Art & Visual Culture in Odense and Kunsten, Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark.

Vilhelm Lundstrøm – The Epitome of Good Taste is on show at Brandts until August 27th, 2017 and then at Kunsten from September 15th, 2017.
