Eugène Jansson Blue Twilight and Naked Athletes
(Text in Swedish with English summary)
The Swedish painter Eugène Jansson (1862-1915) has a wide reputation for his nocturnal images of the city of Stockholm in shades of blues. His vivid brushsstrokes and ambient atmosphere of mysticism, longing and melancholy marks the beginning of something radically new in Swedish painting. While these paintings soon caught the attention of the avant garde art world, his later paintings of naked men in bath houses, cirkuses and gymnasiums, where very much ignored. Today these images, often painted in a grand scale, fascinates and impresses scholars and public alike.
2012 marks the anniversary of Eugène Janssons 150th birthday which is being commemorated in two major exhibitions held at Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde and at Thiels Gallery in Stockholm. This is the richly illustrated catalogue accompanying these exhibitions.
