In Another Light: Danish Painting in the Nineteenth Century

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, Dec 1, 2007 - Art - 240 pages
In Another Light is the first comprehensive volume in English on 19th-century Danish Art, a subject that is increasingly acknowledged as an essential subject of the history of art. The extraordinary outburst of artistic energy that occurred in Denmark between 1790 and 1910 has few rivals. Within three generations Danish painters developed a national school that rivaled the artistic centers of France, Germany, and Britain. The range of outstanding works created by the Danish artists includes Classicism, Romanticism, Impressionism, and Symbolism. The book is illustrated with a comprehensive selection of more than 200 key works of art, and an important selection of comparative illustrations including period photographs and ephemera.
