Gerda Wegener began her career as a fashion illustrator for top magazines, such as Vogue, in the early 1900s. And it was this sense of style and her affinity for capturing the beauty of the female body that would also define her later work. Gerda Wegener went on to be well known for her erotic paintings – as well as for her marriage to Lili Elbe, whose story was told in award-winning film ‘The Danish Girl’.
Our beautiful collection of Gerda Wegener art gives a glimpse into her stylish world and the memorable fashions of the times, including a fine line in hats. Gerda Wegener prints are a must for anyone looking for some seriously chic art…
Gerda Wegener paintings are all about celebrating feminine beauty. From her attention to fashion details, such as gloves, hats and jewellery, to her subject’s fabulous hair and make-up, Gerda Wegener makes women look good. Many of her works were portraits of her stunning transgender husband, Lili. Hang a little piece of modern liberal history in your home with her famous ‘Lili Elbe in Paris’ painting.
Many of her pieces have a lazy, languid atmosphere, such as the summer picnic ‘In the orchard’ or the late-night antics of ‘Last drop’, that work really well hanging in a relaxing, vintage-inspired living room or bedroom. We get the feeling Gerda Wegener knew how to have a good time!
Complement your Gerda Wegener picture with the choice of materials. These paintings have a retro Art Deco style that works well with a number of different options. Her portraits are given an authentic gallery finish when printed onto stretched cotton canvas. Pair that with a floating frame for a touch of class.
The bright colours of many Gerda Wegener artworks are beautifully enhanced when printed onto slender Alu-Dibond to create an especially intense finish, while the pieces with pale colours and her black-and-white sketches stand out when printed onto lightweight Forex foam board.
Or why not give one of her fashion illustrations a glossy finish as if straight out of a magazine by printing onto acrylic glass? And don’t forget our high-quality photo paper which gives you an excellent crisp picture at an affordable price – now you can splash out on a few prints!
