Henry Heerup is one of Denmark’s most cherished artists. He created art for the people, and he was always playful with everything he created. He loved nature, people and his family, which shines through in every painting. “Heerup didn’t make art for the selected few. He made art for the people. His paintings portray motifs from our everyday lives: families, a mother with her child, people in love, a child with a kitten. People can relate to his paintings, and they see themselves in his art,” says Anni Lave Nielsen, director at Heerup Museum.
