Sven Dalsgaard Jensen (29 May 1914 – 22 January 1999) was a Danish painter, sculptor and writer.[1]


Born in Vorup near Randers, Dalsgaard was self-taught as a painter. His earliest paintings are Naturalistic but around 1934 he was inspired by Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee to paint more Abstract works.[1] He debuted at the Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling in 1943. Inspired by Marcel Duchamp, he embarked on Surrealism in the 1940s but moved into a simpler, more stylized approach in the 1950s, producing tall thin sculptures which he soon included in his paintings, for example Kristus fra Randers 1 (Christ from Randers 1, 1954).[2]


In 1978, Dalsgaard was awarded the Thorvaldsen Medal.[3]
