Editorial Reviews


Mr. Gunnarsson provides more than a catalogue of painters and their lives. He examines the ideas and political situations that led, after the Napoleonic Wars, to the realization among Scandinavian artists that fjords and fir trees are as paintable as Roman ruins, and silvery northern mist as interesting as golden Italian sunlight. The book is lavishly illustrated with excellent, often striking works-- most of them located in Scandinavian museums. Those painters found an appreciative audience on their home ground. -- The Atlantic Monthly, Phoebe Lou Adams

The book's condition was excellent and delivery was quick. It was a present for my husband's birthday and he loves it. The reproductions are in vivid color.
