Noord Europese schilderkunst uit de 19de en 20ste eeuw.
De tentoonstelling is een ode aan de volken en culturen van de Noordse landen en biedt een overzicht van 19e en 20e eeuwse Noord-Europese schilderkunst. De prachtige landschappen, portretten en taferelen uit het dagelijkse plattelandsleven tonen zowel overeenkomsten als verschillen tussen de Noordse landen. In de tentoonstelling staat de periode centraal waarin stromingen als het realisme, naturalisme en de meer uiteenlopende stijlen zoals het symbolisme en het opkomende modernisme naast elkaar voorkwamen. De tentoonstelling is te zien tot en met 5 mei 2013.
Exhibition of Northern European painting of the 19th and 20th centuries.
From 9 December 2012 to 5 May 2013, the Groninger Museum will present the exhibition entitled Nordic Art 1880 - 1920. This exhibition is a tribute to the peoples and cultures of the Nordic countries, and provides an overview of 19th and 20th-century North European painting. The splendid landscapes, portraits and scenes from everyday rural life display both the similarities and the differences between the Nordic countries. The exhibition focuses on the time when movements such as Realism, Naturalism and more divergent styles such as Symbolism and upcoming Modernism existed side by side.
