Nordic Painting: Perspectives on Modernity

Nordic Painting: Perspectives on Modernity


This impressively illustrated book provides an authoritative survey of the fin-de-siècle and modernist painting of Scandinavia, discussing artistic interaction between Northern and Central Europe.

Thematically ordered, Alsen and Landmann present a scintillating variety of nineteenth and early twentieth-century artists, whose works explore the idea of national identity and the impact of Nordic history, geography, and society in art. Employing contemporary scholarship with an eye for prevailing themes such as landscapes, abstraction, city life, and portraiture, this inclusive book focuses on the core Scandinavian countries, as well as works from the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and the Danish-German border region.

Analysing the rise of modernism and the importance of Nordic painting, the book explores the works of artists such as Edvard Munch, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Helene Schjerfbeck, Jóhannes S. Kjarval, and Sigrid Hjertén.
