LUZ DEL NORTE/LLUM DEL NORD/THE LIGHT OF THE NORTH. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, 1995. Organized and published by Nordic Council of Ministers, Copenhagen. 334 pp. with 126 ills. (103 col.). 27 x 21 cm. ISBN 9291203685 Trilingual in Spanish, Catalan and English.
Surveys significant currents in Scandinavian painting of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, presenting full-page reproductions of some 100 canvases that include landscapes, portraits and genre scenes by Edvard Munch, Anders Zorn, August Strindberg, Helene Schjerfbeck, Carl Larsson, Vilhelm Hammershoi and 40 other important artists from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. Scholarly commentaries on the exhibited works and concise profiles of the artists augment five essays discussing the relatively tranquil socio-political climate of turn-of-the-century Scandinavia, the impact of naturalism on the work of progressive Nordic painters, the links between the region's artists and the major European art centers, the achievements of Scandinavian women artists of the period, and the distinctive character of Nordic landscape painting.
