“A Danish Pythagoras in blue denim, with pageboy hair, poised behind the wheel of his sputtering 35-year-old beast, on the way to the wooden castle of Munkerup.”
This is how the composer Niels Viggo Bentzon characterized his friend Gunnar Aagaard Andersen, in an article in Politiken on October 27, 1973. In Bentzon’s estimation, Danish art was very lucky to have the phenomenon of Gunnar Aagaard Andersen within its reach. The ‘sputtering beast’ was the large Citröen DS, the design of which can still appeal to a kind of pathos in the heart.
