Specializing inflower painting, Jensen continued his education inParis under the Flemish flower painting brothers,Gérard and Cornelis van Spaendonck, and at theporcelain factory in Sèvres where he learnt the artof miniature flower painting. Taking 17th-centuryDutch flower painting as a starting point, herevived the art in Denmark. His floralarrangements often had both a decorative andsymbolic value. Danish plants were oftenaccompanied by exotic flowers and fruits,sometimes even birds. He also became head artistat the Danish Procelain Factory. Jensen had anextensive circle of customers and many students,especially women, including Louise of Hesse-Kasselwho later married King Christian IX. Since the1980s, his works have gained wide internationalrecognition. Many are exhibited in Statens Museum for Kunst and in Thorvaldsens Museum

Roses were oftenthe principal subject, sometimes set off with anotherflower such as a lilly or with several flowers ofdifferent varieties. Jensen mastered the art ofreproducing nature. His appreciation of earliermasterpieces can be seen in his own work. Hispaintings characteristically are rich in colour andvariety. Some of them depict flowers lying on a tableor in a basket, perhaps strung together in a wreath.While he was one of several artists who paintedexotic plants from Rosenborg, he was happiest whenhe was painting out in the country at Gentofte,sometimes painting wild flowers or strawberries.Some of his works from the 1840s contain exoticfruits or even birds
