Record Type: Person
Salto, Axel (Danish ceramicist, printmaker, and painter, 1889-1961)

Note: Born in Copenhagen, Salto studied at the Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi in Copenhagen (1909-1914) and began a career in painting. He soon became intrigued by modernism and visited Paris in 1916, where he encountered Picasso and Matisse. He went on to co-found the journal Klingen, which became a primary forum for the modernist movement in Denmark between 1917 and 1920. Salto is known primarily as a pioneer of modern pottery design. He began desinging porcelain for Bing & Grøndahl in 1925, and from 1929 working with earthenware, first with Carl Halier, then with Nathalie Krebs (1895–1978) and, from 1933, with Den Kongelige Porcelænsfabrik.
