Provenance: The collection of Helen Schou. Helen Schou, née Rée, (1905-2006) made her mark on the history of Danish sculpture. She is particularly famous for the two grand monuments: The equestrian statue of Christian X from 1955 at Bispetorvet in Aarhus and the "The Jutland Stallion" from 1969 at Østervold in Randers. She was also a versatile and extremely quality-conscious collector of all kinds of art objects. Throughout a lifetime of more than 100 years, she managed to acquire an enormous private collection.
