Danish National Costumes
This series comprises in all 47 figures, which were produced in the period 1906-1925. The artist was much admired by his contemporaries for his considerable production of busts and public monuments. He belonged to a school of Danish artists, which, after the turn of the century, carried on the naturalistic tradition in works, marked by both tastefulness and richness of characterisation.
The series of Danish national coastlines was without doubt one of Carl Martin-Hansen's greatest successes.
