Nordic Art 1880-1920

In the late nineteenth century, painting flourished in the Nordic countries. Important subjects included landscapes, portraits, and scenes from day-to-day life. The art from the four countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland) displayed both similarities and differences among themselves. Movements as realism, naturalism, symbolism, and modernism developed simultaneously and were all represented in this exhibition. Works from among others Edvard Munch, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, and August Strindberg were on show.
