Series in which Andrew Graham-Dixon explores the history of Scandinavia through its art.
Often overlooked in the annals of European art, Scandinavia has a wealth of hidden riches, which are revealed in this major new 3-part series, looking at Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Andrew Graham-Dixon presents, and brings a real storyteller’s ear to the narrative, picking disparate works of art, from paintings to novels, scattered with snatches of philosophy and historical background from across the centuries to create a vivid picture of the region.
This series is the ideal vehicle to familarise oneself with the wonderfully varied work of Scandinavia’s innumerous forgotten masters. Andrew Graham-Dixon’s programme is a fantastic overview and introduction for the initiate.
