experiment. Cubist works, being very innovative in their time in the 1920ies and also being his later creative business card, which was formed by portraits, never had a firm grip of Ole. The artist continuously found inspiration in landscapes and according to commemorations he even enjoyed painting them to himself. Directly before the exhibition, which was held in 1954 in Helsinki in the well-known Taidehalli, Ole went to the nature with a certain assistant professor Eskeröd, as the latter had expressed the wish to see Ole’s manner of painting. “I tried to simplify all sweet accessories and threw from the picture away everything, which in my mind was unsuitable. I painted not with physical, but optical colours,” recalls Ole and then boasts:”But in order to accomplish such advanced colour experience, the painter had to have very sensitive eyes”. The result? The art history professor of the University of Helsinki to Ole: “You have picked the best of all artistic styles and have added them up in your personal aristic integrity”.
