Asger Jorn – Linocuts 1933–1939

BORCH Gallery & Editions is delighted to present a suite of 27 linocuts—yet unseen outside of Denmark—by renowned Danish artist Asger Jorn in the exhibition Linocuts 1933–1939.

A suitcase containing 52 linocuts, created by Asger Jorn between 1933 and 1939, was found a few years ago in his brother’s basement in Denmark. Jorn had asked him to look after it for him and it only resurfaced more than 70 years later. The plates where handed over to Museum Jorn in Silkeborg, which turned to Niels Borch Jensen to review and eventually to print the plates.

Due to the delicacy of the linocuts, they have been mounted on wooden plates and printed by hand on Japanese Kozo paper. The 27 prints in the exhibition have been selected from the total of 52 different plates and are published in an edition of 16.
