Poul Gernes (1925–1996) was born in Copenhagen and lived in southern Sweden for thirty years. Until now his art has not been comprehensively presented in Sweden, although he is considered to be one of Scandinavia’s most significant artists. Yet Gernes has had a posthumous international break-through in recent years, not least because of the generous selection of his works at documenta 12 in 2007.
