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.
