9780300070415: Nordic Landscape Painting in the Nineteenth Century

In this richly illustrated book, Torsten Gunnarsson provides for the first time a comprehensive study of landscape painting in Scandinavia during its vital period of development in the nineteenth century. Scandinavia's search for a national identity, combined with its strong sense of communion with nature, fuelled a growing interest in landscape painting in the 1800s. Gunnarsson shows how the magnificent wilderness became a symbol of Nordic strength and vigour, as well as a counter-image to industrialization and European urban culture.

Review :

Mr. Gunnarsson provides more than a catalogue of painters and their lives. He examines the ideas and political situations that led, after the Napoleonic Wars, to the realization among Scandinavian artists that fjords and fir trees are as paintable as Roman ruins, and silvery northern mist as interesting as golden Italian sunlight. The book is lavishly illustrated with excellent, often striking works-- most of them located in Scandinavian museums. Those painters found an appreciative audience on their home ground. -- The Atlantic Monthly, Phoebe Lou Adams
