A Different Way of Seeing

Jun 29Sep 9, 2021
Works from the Same and Ann Charters Collection of Swedish Art Augustana College

A Different Way of Seeing spans more than a century of distinctively Swedish art from 1877 to 1990, highlighting paintings, mixed media and additional works from artists including modernists Lena Cronqvist and Sven “X-et” Erixson. These and other artists paved the way for the groundswell of talent coming out of the Nordic region today. Many had studied in Paris and returned with new skills and avant-garde ideas that fired a commitment to renew Swedish art.  The exhibition is on loan from the acclaimed Sam and Ann Charters Collection of Swedish Art housed at the Augustana Teaching Museum of Art at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, with support from Julie Hohman.
