Jensen, Johan Laurentz

Johan Laurentz Jensen expressed at an early age the desire to draw, he studied at the Danish Academy, becoming a pupil of Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg and also of Cladius Detlev Fritzsch. He could not decide in which direction to go, between portrait or flower still life painting, he decided to specialize in flower painting. Jensen proceeded with his further training in Paris under the Flemish flower painting brothers, Gérard and Cornelis van Spaendonck, and at the porcelain factory in Sèvres where he learns the art of miniature flower painting.

Taking seventeenth-century Dutch flower painting as his starting point, he revived this art style in Denmark. Johan Laurentz Jensen had an extensive circle of patrons and many women students, including Louise of Hesse-Kassel who later married King Christian IX and became Queen of Denmark.

Johan Laurentz Jensen mastered the art of painting natural flowers, his appreciation of earlier masterpieces influenced his own works with his paintings being rich in color and floral variety. He was one of the several artists who painted exotic plants in Copenhagen's Rosenborg park, but what he enjoyed most was painting out in the country at Gentofte en plein air.
