In Lady Barclay’s Salon
With more than 300 works selected from the rich collections of Nationalmuseum and Moderna Museet, this exhibition offers insights into the visual culture of the period. Most of the material is Swedish, but some international highlights are included.
From the late-19th century to the First World War, pictorialism was the most prominent photographic style. Inspired by impressionism, symbolism and naturalism, this was the first international movement in art photography.
The years around 1900 were also an interesting period in painting. The artists presented alongside the photographers belonged to an in-between generation, inspired by Japanese art, art nouveau contours and symbolist ideas, and formed a vital link between the prominent national painters of the 1880s and the emerging expressionist and modernist movements in the first decades of the 20th century.
