Jens Søndergaard's Museum

In a small black building on the brink of the cliff at Ferring stands Jens Søndergaard's Museum (Link via Lemvig Museum). From 1930 to his death in 1957 this used to be his summer residence and studio, and most of the works in the museum were painted right her. As an artist Søndergaard was inspired by the magnificent landscape he found right on his doorstep. Many of the canvases reach from floor to ceiling, like open windows overlooking the cliff and the North Sea, or the rugged treeless countryside with its scattered houses. The people in Søndergaard's paintings are often mere black profiles against the backdrop of the landscape.

Outside the museum stand three simple figures, made out of cement. Søndergaard used the same material that is used in the breakwaters down on the beach.

The "Cement man" on the very edge of the cliff is gazing out over the sea, as if straight out of a painting...or out of reality
