L.A. Ring, Denmark, and the Threshold of Modernity - Talk with Patricia G. Berman

 

Laurits Andersen Ring’s work recorded transformations in the cultural world of Denmark in the late nineteenth century.  It forms a fascinating dialogue with the community of artists throughout Europe who registered the rapidity with which industry changed the social and material landscape.  A painter of exceptional skill and vision, Ring is not well known outside of Denmark.  This talk examines Ring’s prescience as both an eyewitness to and a participant in late nineteenth-century culture, and Copenhagen as part of a robust exchange among European art circles.

Patricia G. Berman is the Theodora L. and Stanley H. Feldberg Professor of Art at Wellesley College where she teaches modern and contemporary art, the history of photography, and propaganda studies.  She has published widely and curated exhibitions in the US and Europe.  Her books include In Another Light; Danish Art in the Nineteenth Century, and studies of the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and of the Belgian James Ensor.  Her most recent project is an exhibition of Edvard Munch’s photography entitled “The Experimental Self,” currently held at Stockholm’s Thielska Galleriet.
