Jais Nielsen – Epics in Clay

13 October 2018 – 28 April 2019

Jais Nielsen (1885-1961) was celebrated as one of Denmark’s greatest ceramic artists at the beginning of the 20th century.
The interest in his sublime ceramics still lives on today. Jais Nielsen’s art was rooted in the Avantgarde of Modernism and was strongly inspired by Antiquity and the Middle Ages as well as the dramatic stories of the Bible. Here a kaleidoscopic light is shed on his historic oeuvre.
