Illustrated with over two hundred key works of art drawn from the leading Danish collections, In Another Light is the only book available in English that surveys Danish painting across the nineteenth century. Recent exhibitions on the Golden Age of Danish painting and the ‘rediscovery’ of Vilhelm Hammershø i have whetted a growing interest in and taste for Danish painting of the nineteenth century. Yet surprisingly, there have been few studies of this vital school of art. That deficit is now corrected with this landmark study of Danish art. Between 1790 and 1910, Danish painters developed a national school of art that matched the artistic centres of France, Germany and Britain. The range of outstanding works created by Nicolai Abildgaard, Jens Juel, Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Christen Kø bke, P. S. Krø yer and Vilhelm Hammershø i reflect and refract the great stylistic tendencies of European art of the nineteenth century, including Classicism, Romanticism, Impressionism and Symbolism. Written by a major scholar in the field, and featuring all the icons of the Danish Golden Age, this is an essential addition to all art libraries.
