Summary
Focuses on a motif that fascinates, infuriates and embraces the very big questions of existence. The catalog accompanies the Skagen Museum and the Hirschsprung Collection's exhibition of the same name, where major works by e.g. Edvard Munch, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Christian Krohg and Anna Ancher help to explore the question: Why did the sick girl become a widespread motif among artists in the Nordic countries between 1850 and 1900? The catalog presents a motif that lets the contrasts meet. For the sick girl is not just a sick girl. As a motif, she embraces the boundaries between healthy and sick, life and death, togetherness and isolation, life outside and inside. She appeared among both well-known and unknown artists of the period and shared the waters: some reviewers called the motif depressing, while others praised its strength and unforgettability. The catalog contains Mette Bøgh Jensen's peer-reviewed article 'Illness, sentimentality and sympathy - sick girl in Nordic art 1850-1900.
Sætter fokus på et motiv som fascinerer, forarger og tager favntag med eksistensens helt store spørgsmål. Kataloget ledsager Skagens Museum og Den Hirschsprungske Samlings udstilling af samme navn, hvor hovedværker af bl.a. Edvard Munch, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Christian Krohg og Anna Ancher er med til at udforske spørgsmålet: Hvorfor blev den syge pige et udbredt motiv blandt kunstnere i Norden mellem 1850 og 1900? Kataloget præsenterer et motiv, som lader kontrasterne mødes. For den syge pige er ikke bare en syg pige. Som motiv favner hun grænserne mellem rask og syg, liv og død, samvær og isolation, livet udenfor og indenfor. Hun dukkede op blandt både kendte og ukendte kunstnere i perioden og delte vandene: nogle anmeldere kaldte motivet nedtrykkende, mens andre hyldede dets styrke og uforglemmelighed. Kataloget indeholde Mette Bøgh Jensens fagfællebedømte artikel Sygdom, sentimentalitet og sympati - syge pige i nordisk kunst 1850-1900.
