NORDIC ART IN 2020


2020 seems to be is a promising year for Nordic art on the international scene. We are all very excited about The Golden Age of Danish Painting – which formerly has been on show in the national galleries of Stockholm and Copenhagen – that will open in Petit Palais in Paris in April.


While the French audience earlier have had the opportunity to see exhibitions on individual artists – such as C.W. Eckersberg – this will be the first major presentation on Danish golden age painting in Paris, with more than two hundred works.

Hannah Ryggen: Threads of Defience

By Marit Paasche


 

The significance of Hannah Ryggen (1894–1970) as one of the most important figures in the history of Scandinavian art has only recently been recognized internationally. Beloved and renowned for her original contributions to modernist tapestry, Ryggen made radical political statements against Fascism and Nazism before and during the Second World War. Using primary sources, Ryggen expert Marit Paasche brings us a much fuller knowledge of the artist, weaving her life and work into a story that illuminates not only the artist herself, but also 20th-century art history in general.
