Scandinavian Art Comes to America 1912 - an international exhibition of early modern Scandinavian paintings.
Luminous Modernism: This new exhibition at Scandinavia House consists of 48 works by leading late 19th- and early 20th-century Nordic artist from more than a dozen public and private collections around the world. Great names such as Edvard Munch, Carl Larsson, Vilhelm Hammershøi and Anders Zorn and other Nordic pioneers’ work - all among the names that gave America its first introduction to Scandinavian art - are exposed at this international loan exhibition. The exhibition is an organized effort put together by an international team of scholars and curators.
“This is a unique constellation; we have brought together five different countries represented by artists from three generations. This is the first time you are able to see these respected names united in the same room,” said head curator Dr. Patricia G. Berman, at the opening reception on Oct. 19.
Luminous Modernism, the final exhibition of three presented by The American-Scandinavian Foundation in recognition of its centennial, was dedicated on Oct. 20 by their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden, and Royalty or heads of state from Norway, Finland, Iceland and Denmark.
