Jens Rosing

"Jens Rosing is one of Greenland's thrilling artists, who quite naturally has found many of his subjects and themes in the fauna and nature of Greenland." He was born in 1925, a son of a Lutheran priest in Jakobshavn on the northeast coast of Greenland. Despite enrolling for studies in the Royal Greenland Trading Company in Copenhagen, he left to become an artist, preferring to combine an artistic talent with his life-long interest in folklore, especially that of his native land. He took part in several Greenland expeditions of the Danish National Museum and served as Director of the Greenland Museum from 1976 to 1978 in Nuuk. In 1980 Jens Rosing was awarded the Danish Authors' Association prize for popular science.
