Major social changes, world wars and influences from European metropoles such as Paris and Berlin impacted on Swedish art in the first half of the 20th century: in landscape depictions featuring new industrial elements, the rapidly-growing cities and their outskirts, intimate renderings of everyday life, and portrayals of feelings. Meanwhile, more and more artists turned their attention to inner worlds and fantasy, and to motifs that reveal a longing for the past.
This exhibition includes works by artists such as Anna Casparsson, Siri Derkert, Sven X-et Erixson, Isaac Grünewald, Sigrid Hjertén, Bror Hjort, Hilding Linnqvist and Vera Nilsson.
“Pink Sails – Swedish Modernism in the Moderna Museet collection” is the second exhibition in the new presentation of the Moderna Museet collection.
Curator: Matilda Olof-Ors
