Art of the Nordic Countries

162 TUTOR: Simon McKeown (Marlborough College)

The Scandinavian countries have often been overlooked in general surveys of the European artistic tradition, excluded from the foremost rank of nations for cultural endeavour and dismissed as only fitful contributors to the continent's creative achievement. This course will explore the merits of such estimations by looking at the distinctive artistic production of the three principal Scandinavian kingdoms: Norway, Denmark and Sweden. What will emerge is a heightened sense of the diversity and richness of creativity fostered in the boreal lands over the course of the last millennium and the particular preoccupations of artists living at one remove, geographically and culturally, from the European landmass. Key areas of study will include the art of the Middle Ages, the Danish Renaissance, Sweden's Age of Greatness, the Romantic movement, Symbolist art, National-Romanticism and the Jugendstil, in each case examining artefacts drawn from the disciplines of painting, sculpture, architecture and the applied arts.
