Norwegian & Swiss Landscapes

Image coming soon.

Jeffrey Dennis writes about the exhibition Forests, Rocks, Torrents: Norwegian and Swiss Landscapes from the Lunde Collection on view at the National Gallery, London through September 18, 2011.

Although the works on view show the Northern Romantic influence of Caspar David Friedrich, Dennis writes that works by Swiss painter Alexandre Calame stand out: "There is a refreshing sense of the artist scanning a landscape without anxiety to find the picturesque or resort to learnt formats of composition; instead having to invent new ways to paint, and to compose paintings in response to an experience of nature."
