Northern Painters: Modest Landscapes

Image coming soon.

Altoon Sultan blogs about 19th century northern European paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Sultan writes: "…on my most recent visit to the Met I … was very happy to discover 3 or 4 small rooms tucked towards the rear that were full of beautiful, small landscape studies. The paintings I most admired were done by artists from northern Europe: Scandinavia––Denmark, Norway, Sweden––Flanders, and Germany… The work seemed very close to American Luminist painting in its clarity of light and form, its classic layering of space, and its modest size."
