Overview

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.

    Useful Survey, Good Book

    I am not expert in the period or painters (hence 4 stars, not 5), so my comments should be taken with appropriate caution. Still, I found the essays and selection interesting and informative, and the book could be useful as a springboard for further explorations. Production values are good, and I'm happy to have this in my library.
