Summary
Delightful landscapes, idyllic genre scenes, light-flooded interiors, and atmospheric portraits: this richly illustrated book introduces the most important stylistic directions, artists, and works of Nordic painting. Concentrating on the period of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it centers on Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland, but also considers the equally interesting Nordic regions of the Faroes, Greenland, and the German-Danish borderland...Drawing from the most recent research, this extensive monograph addresses itself to various issues, including the interaction between Nordic and Central European artists and the development of modernism in Nordic art. At the same time, it opens up new perspectives on the present: a consideration of the works of contemporary artists such as Ragnar Kjartansson and Olafur Eliasson, which make both thematic and formal reference to the previous century, elucidates the enduring significance of Nordic art even today. -- publisher's statement
