Abstract

The essay explores the overall pattern and stylistic aspects of Swedish art in the 1890s. The stylistic development leading up to the emergence of National Romanticism is discussed on two levels. Firstly, the characteristics of Naturalism are discussed, as well as Sweden's relations to foreign countries, in particular France. Secondly, the development of landscape art is provided. The main part of the essay is dedicated to the importance of nature and its expression in art. Quotations and references to social and literary activities to reach a full understanding of the art support the analysis. The catalogue is a complement to the essay and gives relevant biographical data as well as more specific information of the works included in the exhibition.
