The midsummer celebration : A comparative study of four paintings illustrating the life of the common people in Sweden during the 19th Century (Engelska)
Abstract [en]

In this essay four paintings illustrating the Swedish midsummer celebration among common people are examined. The selected paintings are Midsommardans på Säfstaholm (1825) by Johan Gustaf Sandberg, Midsommardans i Rättvik (1855) by Kilian Zoll, Midsommarleken på Norsbron i Floda (1858) by Joseph Wilhelm Wallander and Midsommardans (1897) by Anders Zorn. The paintings and their motifs are examined individually, but also in a comparative manner through an extensive and detailed analysis. The composition of the paintings and how the motifs are represented are central themes in the examination but also how the paintings can be perceived in a nationalistic point of view, since nationalism was one of the current themes in Sweden during the 19th Century.

Among other things, the results connected to the composition of the paintings show that a change over time seem to be discernible, for example when it comes to movement and a sense of a physical closeness to the motifs and the paintings themselves.

Discernable nationalistic expressions found in the paintings are that the people and their folk costumes became a symbol for Sweden and what’s perceived as typical Swedish. Also the chosen motifs by the painters turned out to be of nationalistic importance.
