Further Biographical Context for Poul Erik Mikkelsen
Born in 1939, Poul Erik Mikkelsen grew up during the 1950s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. During the Post War period, New York City became the international focus for Modernism. Throughout the Second World War, many artists had travelled to the city after having fled in exile from Europe, which resulted in a merging and amalgamation of abilities and ideas. Whilst in New York, influential Europeans such as Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann provided inspiration for American artists, and influenced cultural development in the United States for many decades that followed. Significant artists of this period included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. In later revisions, the contributions and efforts of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois have been recognised, amongst many other female creatives.
