Description: Scandinavian-American artists, such as Solon Borglum (1868-1922), John Carlson (1874-1945), Emil Carlsen (1848-1932), Jonas Lie (1880-1940), and Birger Sandzén (1871-1954), are represented in art collections throughout the United States. Yet, their works languish in storage, or they are examined cursorily in the galleries, relegated to the margins of American art history. This seminar will examine curatorial strategies for better integrating paintings, sculptures, and works on paper created by Scandinavian-American artists from 1850 until 1950 into permanent displays and special exhibitions of American art. Participants will be required to submit a paper that identifies possible links between Scandinavian-American artists and objects within a museum’s collection. Topics might explore the work of immigrant artists who made significant contributions to regional and national schools of art or discuss exhibitions of Scandinavian art that influenced American artists.
