The book 100 Years of Danish Art presents 100 selected paintings from the collection - the major works, but also lesser known pictures that deserve new attention. The book offers the public insight into the amusing and fascinating stories that lie behind the individual works by artists like Eckersberg, Ancher and Hammershøi. Great emphasis has been placed on giving the book an inviting form with pictures and intriguing texts, so the book is also am excellent idea for a gift.

The period from 1880 to 1910 appears as one of the most outstanding periods in Scandinavian painting as the art in each of the four Nordic countries- Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden- simultaneously attained a power, a coherence, and an originality never reached before. During this period, collaboration between Scandinavian artists increased dramatically, and they often maintained these ties during their frequent sojourns in Paris, Brittany, and Normandy. Rather than attempting to do justice to the many strong individualities present, this exhibition stresses the interconnections and common themes within their work. Thus it captures the characteristic play of light and air that recurs throughout the artists’ depictions of reality. Essentially, this book presents the young Nordic avant-garde of the 1880s, including artists such as Munch, Zorn, Schjerfbeck, Ancher, Larsson, Krøyer, and Liljefors, to name a few, who broke new ground in their own countries’ national art, but also remained consistently aware of trends and movement abroad.

Abildgaard (1743-1809) cannot be compared with any one in Danish art rather he should be side by side with the best of European art. His passion for art, intellectural curiosity and his innovation for the avant garde helped to decide the experimentation and growth in the national art in Denmark. Abildgaard never knew his own greatness, but his pictures have time after time fascinated the living artists and writers. This book concentrates on the art of the1700s, which has often been in the shadow of the golden age, the intensive1800s.
