More information

During the 1930s Pyke Koch was best known for his portraits of prostitutes and other figures on the ragged edges of society, but around 1944 he suddenly painted a series of still lifes. The genre didn’t interest him in the slightest: they were meant as wartime barter for food and cigarettes. Koch thought of them as wholly separate from his main oeuvre but they are small gems nonetheless, as finely crafted as his ‘official’ paintings.
