Exhibition History
Standing Woman exudes timeless tranquillity with its taut, stringent form. The upright posture and the frontal position with one leg extended in front of the other relates to the Egyptian, archaic tradition. Standing Woman is one of twelve artworks included in the Danish cultural canon as deemed especially important for Denmark’s cultural heritage. Astrid Noack was trained as a sculptor in Copenhagen and after some ten years in Paris she developed an artistic expression which combined monumentality and intimacy, with a strong emphasis on craftsmanship.
