"Från gryning till skymning" ( From dawn to dusk ) - Nordic art around the turn of the century 1900

Location: Östersund city
Category: Exhibits

The 19th century last decades was a time of radical development in the Nordic region of art. Young artists tired of the conservative atmosphere at the arts academies where the history of painting was highly valued. One after one several of the most talented students abroad, most of them to France and Paris. Here the man suddenly felt freedom. Not least because female artists met far better conditions in Paris than at home in the Nordic countries. Eva Bonnier and Harriet Backer were prominent among Scandinavians. Far beyond the history of history, artificial image world, one could focus on reality, to paint this with the same empathy and seriousness.

Around 1890 the man began to call for a more clear national Nordic art. The voice was raised to get artists to return home to paint their own countries in a way that expressed their particular character. In Sweden you can describe the development as if you went from dawn and daylight to dusk and evening light. Primarily in landscape painting but in ways also show in portrait painting that became more introverted.

The exhibition is rounded off with a series of foam motifs. From interiors with socializing around tables with candles, to Eugene Jansson's suggestive views from Stockholm. The literature was now an important starting point for the visual arts. In Sweden, moved to Strindberg in the city, for example, in the sense of Charles Baudelaire and Émile Zola. The city soon held its own mythology which, together with the reader's or viewer's imagination, made greater influence made images like this one the strongest and closest dramatic experiences even though nothing plays in itself - a crowded urban space that forms the scene for the viewer's imagination.
