Richard Ludvig Philip Weibull Winther
1926 Maribo - 2007 Vindeby

Richard Ludvig Philip Weibull Winther was a Danish artist focused mainly on painting, graphics, photography and sculpture. Richard's work was greatly influenced by Asger Jorn and Richard Mortensen, both Danish artists part of the Linien group.

Winther achieved great international recognition and is one of the few Danish artists who was invited to have his own exhibition at MoMa in New York. From 1980-86 he was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, but broke with the art establishment, in which he could no longer see himself. For the last 14 years of his life he lived in Vindeby on Lolland, in the town's old nursing home, which he influenced to such an extent that the house stands as a synthesis of the arts of his life's work. 250 square meters, dilapidated, with some walls intact, others broken down, so that there is light and air in all rooms. But also with decorations painted directly on the walls, which, with an area of more than 70 square meters, continue to provide a powerful welcome to the house's guests.

"Abildgaard was an eclectic. Picasso and Max Ernst, too. Also Per Kirkeby, Bjørn Nørgaard and myself. We are all strong consumers of existing images, publications that we process, manipulate, transform into new images. It's a working method. You make images with images. You make art with art." Richard Winther.
