Biography Jens Jensen
Jens Jensen (1895 - 1978) came to the United States from Denmark in 1927. After arriving in Cincinnati, he joined the Rookwood Pottery Company and soon became known as the company's modernist. In 1931, he married fellow Rookwood artist Elizabeth Barrett (1903-1987). Jensen and Barrett moved to Ripley, Ohio when Rookwood closed in 1948. Over the next thirty years, Jensen created an impressive body of paintings that are now in prestigious public and private collections all over the world. This exhibition provides a candid insight into the images and themes Jensen revered and includes some paintings that have not been seen by the public.
Jensen was a shy man, yet he also had a rather volatile personality. T
