Knud Horup 1926-1973
Knud Ejnar Horup was born on 22 May 1926. He was a Danish painter best known for his modernist approach to Scandinavian landscapes settings.
Horup attended the Århus Tekniske Skole (Technical School) in Århus and then the Hovedskous School of Painting (Hovedskous målarskola) in Gothenburg - This was a private school founded by the Danish artist (and celebrated WWII resistance fighter) Börge Hovedskou (1910-1966). Hovedskou moved to Sweden in 1943 and founded the painting school in the Haga district of Gothenburg.
Horups solo exhibitions (in Denmark, Sweden and Norway) were always well recieved by both critcs and collectors. Horups group exhibitions include Ung Kunst (Young Art) in Århus (1951), the annual Artists Autumn Exhibition (Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling) - held at the Charlottenborg Palace in Copenhagen in 1952 and 1953. The Danish artists associations Den Frie Udstilling (The Free Exhibition) held annually at Østerbrogade (now renamed Oslo Plads), Copenhagen in 1952. In 1955 Horup exhibited at the newly restored Aalborghallen (now the Aalborg Kongres & Kultur Center) in Aalborg, Denmark and in 1956 he was invited to exhibit at the Exhibition of Danish Crafts and Crafts (Den Permanente) in the Vesterbrogade district of Copenhagen.
