About Per Lunde Jørgensen's work
Per Lunde Jørgensen is best known for creating minimalist work. Minimalism is a contemporary art movement that was born in the post World War II era, in New York city. The roots of minimalism mainly lay in a desire to create an art devoid of expression and metaphors, as well as distance the productions from the traditionally accepted standards of fine art. This mindset started to break through amidst blossoming artists, who were growing tired of the current state of art, which they deemed stale and too academic. Minimalist artists really tried to break down all traditional and established conceptions about what could constitute art, making it one of the most radical and progressive movements of the modern period. Some of the main figures of Minimalism include Donald Judd, Dan Flavin and Frank Stella. In Minimalism, the central idea is that art should have its own reality, rather than try to imitate life. Indeed, the viewer is solely inclined to see the purity of the artwork presented, as defined by its formal elements, like line and colour, and to grasp the harmony of something which does not try to be anything else than what it is. Minimalism remains one of the most significant modern art movements.

Historical Context of Denmark
As the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, Denmark has often been very influenced by the Germanic culture of Northern Europe, that borders its southern limits. This responsiveness is often combined with the Nordic traits of restraint and melancholy in its arts. At the end of the nineteenth century, and in the earlier part of the twentieth, Denmark originated an extremely important painter of Post-Impressionism, Vilhelm Hammershøi. Acclaimed for his wistful and extremely scarce interiors, Hammershøi's reputation was founded on his ethereal depictions of light and shadow in modest, dignified interiors, most often his own residence. In the later twentieth century, Denmark was a significant country in the CoBrA movement of Expressionist painting, where the naming convention was derived from the cities of the founding members - the Co standing for Copenhagen on behalf of Danish artist Asger Jorn. Founded in 1949, CoBrA's bright colours and lively childlike figures became both a scandal and sensation. Other prominent modern and Danish artists include Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson, Danh Vō, Sergej Jensen and Tal R.
