Nordic Myths

A concert of Scandinavian music will be preceded by a look at turn-of-the-century painting in Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Working in a naturalistic style, many painters of the period chronicled the land and the everyday lives of city dwellers and peasants, while others explored Scandinavian myths and history. Mystery and awe in the face of nature seen in the works of many Nordic artists culminates in the powerful expressionistic imagery of Norwegian master Edvard Munch.
