Mancoba, Sonja Ferlov - National Gallery of Denmark

The National Gallery of Denmark will present the largest exhibition ever staged of the sculptures, paintings, collage and drawings created by Danish-French artist Sonja Ferlov Mancoba . (05.02.2019 - 05.05.2019)
With this exhibition, we bring to light one of the most important artists in Denmark in modern times, telling the story of a truly unique figure whose life and art remained inextricably interwoven throughout her life.
Sonja Ferlov Mancoba had a lifelong interest in non-Western culture. Here she found art that seemed to her more human than the one produced by Western culture in her day. Art that she regarded as exemplary expressions of the sense of community and inter-human connectedness for which she fought. (Text: National Gallery of Denmark)
