The exhibition features over 100 works by some of the greatest artists from Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Finland from 1880 to 1910, offering insight into the history and culture of these countries. The title refers to the importance of the summer solstice (Midsommar) in Scandinavian culture, but also the changes that took place in Nordic painting at this time, when new subjects and means of representation developed, from realism to symbolism to very individual expressions of form and colour. In addition to special focus on female artists, as well as the artist colony in Skagen, Denmark, the exhibition concentrates on several issues typical of northern art: nature and its impact on human life, work, home and family; national myths and legends; metaphysical landscapes; and people’s “inner” being.
