A playful representation of a close embrace. Two abstract faces that meet in a tender gesture of love. We are happy to present to you "The Kiss": Bengt Lindström in his absolute best.
Bengt Lindström (1925-2008) is one of our most beloved artists in Sweden and is known for his strong brushstrokes, rough faces and intense colors. He studied in both Copenhagen and Chicago and lived for several years in Paris, where he was accepted at both André Lhote and Fernand Léger's painting schools. He also trained at Konstfack under both Isaac Grünewald and Otte Sköld. Through his interest in the inherent power of colors, he came into contact with the Cobra group in France during the 1950s. Lindström made several monumental paintings and one of his single largest works is the large silo painting in Örebro. He is represented at the National Museum in Stockholm, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the Gothenburg Art Museum.
