Picturing a World

Midsummer 19th C paintings

Blog post alert: Midsummer in Paintings: Midsummer Eve reproduces eight Scandinavian paintings of Midsummer's Eve celebrations in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Gorgeous—and very human in contrast to the Titania-Oberon folkloric associations that crop up in English-speaking traditions.
Krøyer's painting is included, but I have taken a higher resolution image from Krøyer's Final Masterpiece.
