Design. Mogens Koch
Year of design. 1932
Provenance: From the estate of late Greek artist Michael Michaelides
He began his artistic career as a self-taught painter, painting near-naturalistic landscapes before his work became increasingly abstracted. Even in his early paintings he has always been concerned with the effects of light and shade. By the end of the 1960s he had moved away from painting and started making shaped canvas reliefs, initially painted but later eliminating all colour in preference for bare canvas. The elimination of colour came about by the artist's recognition of his formal inspiration: marble relief sculpture of the ancient Greeks.
