Abstract:

"In the province of Värmland in Sweden a group of about 50 creative people developed a unique artist's colony at the beginning of the 20th century. The oldest participant was born in 1852 and the youngest in 1925. They were primarily painters, craftsmen and musicians, working independently. These inspired people became known as the Rackstad Artist Colony because the principal members lived in and around a community called Rackstad, situated on the south end of Lake Racken, north of the small town of Arvika. The Rackstad Dance is a tribute to the artists and the unique colony that provided Sweden with some of its finest works of art. The study is complete with photographs of life, times and of course the magnificent works created in the Rackstad group as well as historical knowledge that up to this time has not been assembled"--Page 4 of cover.
