Insgesamt farbfrisch und in sehr guter Erhaltung Pastos of oil paint applied with a brush and partly with a palette knife, scattered craquelures. Overall fresh in colour and in very good condition Erläuterungen / Comments Alfred Jensen setzt sich mit unzähligen Ordnungs- und Zahlensystemen auseinander und bringt diese auf unverkennbare Weise auf Leinwand oder Papier. Ausgehend von den Erkenntnissen des griechischen Philosophen und Mathematikers Pythagoras von Samos (etwa 580 bis etwa 500 v. Chr.) und den Lehren der Pythagoräer, entsteht 1963 eine Serie von mindestens sieben Arbeiten in Öl auf Leinwand mit dem Titel "Pythagoras". Vier dieser Werke, das vorliegende eingeschlossen, waren in der Ausstellung in Winterthur 2015 zu sehen. 1964 widmet Jensen dem Satz des Pythagoras ein vierteiliges Wandbild "The Pythagorean Theorem Per I-IV", im selben Jahr entsteht ein sechsteiliges, grossformatiges Ölgemälde mit dem Titel "Honor Pythagoras, Per I – Per VI", das sich heute im Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC befindet. Pythagoras vertrat die mystische Lehre von der Zahl als Urprinzip aller Dinge und von der harmonischen Ordnung als höchstes kosmologisches Gesetz. Jensen interpretiert diese Erkenntnisse und überträgt sie in die Malerei Alfred Jensen deals with innumerable systems of order and numbers and brings them onto canvas or paper in an unmistakable way. Starting with the insights of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras of Samos (around 580 to around 500 BC) and the teachings of the Pythagoreans, he created a series of at least seven works in oil on canvas entitled "Pythagoras" in 1963. Four of these works, including the present one, were shown in the Winterthur exhibition in 2015. In 1964, Jensen dedicated a four-part mural "The Pythagorean Theorem Per I-IV" to Pythagoras' theorem, and in the same year he created a six-part, large-format oil painting entitled "Honor Pythagoras, Per I - Per VI", which is now in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC. Pythagoras advocated the mystical doctrine of number as the primordial principle of all things and of harmonic order as the highest cosmological law. Jensen interprets these insights and transfers them to painting MWST / VAT Mehrwertsteuer auf dem Zuschalgspreis plus Aufgeld / VAT on hammer price plus buyer's premium Erwartete Ausrufzeit / Estimated Auction Time of Lot (+/- 30min) 17.06.2022; 16:30 h (MEST / CET) For further information visit our Website.

Wieland Schmied schrieb im Ausstellungskatalog von 1973: "Die Zahl der Ordnungssysteme, in die sich Alfred Jensen versenkt hat, ist scheinbar unbegrenzt: die Kalender der Maya und der Inka und die Baupläne der mexikanischen und ägyptischen Pyramiden, indianische und chinesische Zahlensysteme, Schriften, Symbole und Hieroglyphen, die Regel des Goldenen Schnitts und der Satz des Pythagoras, die Lehren der Pythagoräer und der Orphiker, die Zeichen und Häuser des Tierkreises, das delphische Orakel und die Weissagungen des I Ging, Leonardo da Vincis Schriften und Goethes Farbenlehre" Das hier angebotene Werk war 1973 auf grosser Ausstellungstournee und fand an der letzten Station in der Kunsthalle Bern seine neuen Besitzer. Seither ist es in der selben Familie geblieben Alfred Jensen was a great theoretician of his time, which was also reflected in his paintings. Wieland Schmied wrote in the 1973 exhibition catalogue: "The number of systems of order into which Alfred Jensen immersed himself is seemingly unlimited: The calendars of the Maya and the Inca and the blueprints of the Mexican and Egyptian pyramids, Indian and Chinese number systems, scripts, symbols and hieroglyphs, the rule of the golden section and the Pythagorean theorem, the teachings of the Pythagoreans and the Orphics, the signs and houses of the zodiac, the Delphic oracle and the divinations of the I Ching, Leonardo da Vinci's writings and Goethe's theory of colours." The work offered here was on a major exhibition tour in 1973 and found its new owners at its last stop in the Kunsthalle Bern. Since then it has remained in the same family Erwartete Ausrufzeit / Estimated Auction Time of Lot (+/- 30min) 17.06.2022; 16:30 h (MEST / CET) For further information visit our Website.
