Women Pioneers

Visionary Landscapes

Women Pioneers – Landscapes

March 4 – August 20, 2023

Our major spring exhibition presents the oeuvres of four women pioneers and visionaries of landscape painting, whose works from around the turn of the century 1900 are featured. The artists chosen are Ester Almqvist (1869–1934), Anna Boberg (1864–1935), Ellen Trotzig (1878–1949) and Charlotte Wahlström (1849–1924).

The art historical writing of the past regarding landscape painting from this period has mainly focused on works by male artists. In this exhibition the perception of Swedish landscape art from around 1900 has been broadened and deepened, at the same time as a number of distinguished, but seldom exhibited, women artists have emerged from the shadows and are here seen in their own right.
