Format: Hardcover
"In Another Light: Danish Painting In The Nineteenth Century" by Patricia Berman (Theodora L. and Stanley H. Feldberg Professor of Art, Wellesley College) is an impressively illustrated and informative history of Danish artists and their works reflecting and influencing the European art world and included the artistic movements known as Classicism, Romanticism, Impressionism, and Symbolism. A seminal and scholarly study of 19th century Danish art, "In Another Light" is beautifully illustrated with 288 full-color and flawless reproductions of paintings. Of special interest to students of European art, "In Another Light" is very highly recommended to for professional and academic library Art History reference collections, and would make a superb selection Memorial Fund selection choice for community libraries.

As a prefatory observation, unrelated to the overall content of Patricia G. Berman's book, the painting depicted on the dust jacket to this book (which is also illustrated and discussed in the book itself) is a well-known, "signature" icon of early 19th Century Danish Painting. Selecting this iconic painting to illustrate the dust jacket of Ms. Berman's book is apt, compelling, and eye-catching.

The painter (Eckersberg) of the work illustrating the dust jacket of Ms. Berman's book directed and taught painting at the Danish Royal Academy in the early 19th Century, where Eckersberg introduced the study of figure painting in Denmark. Eckersberg is often described as the "father of Danish painting," because of his accomplishments at the Danish Royal Academy. Rather than the human figure, Eckersberg seems to have been more interested in painting nautical subjects (the Danes are a seafaring people), a topic Ms. Berman's book basically does not discuss; however, Ms. Berman's book is a gem notwithstanding.

Eckersberg's work was the subject of an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., in 2004 - and this "signature," iconic painting coincidentally illustrated the cover of this 2004 exhibition's catalog.

So much for the "selling sex" remark in the previous customer review about the dust jacket of Ms. Berman's new book.

Technically, Danes consider the "Golden Age" in Danish painting to be in the first half of the 19th Century. However, there was a second - and distinct - golden age in the second half.

One feature readily evident in Ms. Berman's book is that many Danish paintings illustrated therein are in the private collection of Ambassador John L. Loeb, who I believe once served as U.S. Ambassador to Denmark.

This book is a must have for those who are of Danish descent. there is a large respect paid to those who have put Denmark on the map of the artworld. As minute as it may be today, Denmark played a large role in the development of art throughout the 16th 17th and 18th century in Europe. Its own culture, much like that of the Dutch, is reflected in the artwork, which shown in this book, was created by some amazing talent emerging from schools on par with French and Italian atleiers producing heroes of art history. A great collection of art and compilation of charitable history either way, but very important to those who have roots in Danish ancestry. :) Enjoy
