Abstract:

Andrew Graham Dixon dissects the art of Scandinavia in a series of three programmes that join the highly successful Art of strand. It's the story of art in a land without light for months on end and of how a landscape (and the art it inspired) gave us 20th Century existentialism. However it is also the story of eroticism, where the light is white and ultra-brilliant; the world of the Snow Queen and the Ugly Duckling; and of futuristic thinking and optimism that has given us bicycle-riding monarchs, the most democratic social structures, Lego and the Modernism. This fascinating series travels across Scandinavia to see how the different countries and cultures have contributed to a very distinct art. Scandinavia - a land of extremes, on the edge of Europe. Andrew Graham-Dixon explores the extraordinary art to come out of the dark Norwegian soul, most famous for producing The Scream by Edvard Munch.
