Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint

[Denmark] (b 1853/d 1930)

"Peder Jensen-Klint  was admitted to the College of Advanced Technology in 1870 and graduated as a building engineer in 1877..(..) In May 1878, Jensen-Klint was admitted to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Painting where he took all the classes but never graduated. He wanted to pursue a career as an artist but had to teach mathematics to make a living. In the end he had to give up his aspirations to live as an artist and from 1889 to 1897 he worked as an assistant for the City Engineer in Copenhagen and from 1892 to 1916 he also gave drawing classes at the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University...(..) Jensen-Klint became increasingly interested in architecture and his first architectural work was a villa in Hellerup designed for a good friend, (..) After that followed several more villas in the same area which all demonstrate various experiments with masonry in red brick. (..) he was then admitted into the Architects' Association of Denmark in spite of his lack of formal training . (..) As a painter, Jensen-Klint first concentrated on landscape painting ,but after he gave up his artistic career, he still painted occasionally and also started to show an interest in sculptural work, (..)  ceramics and eventually other decorative works such as gravestones, bookbindings and particularly furniture"
