Rebellious Danish Painter L.A. Ring Exhibited at the National Nordic Museum in Seattle

Danish painters from the 19th century have established quite a name for themselves internationally. Vilhelm Hammershøi is one of them, but even more popular in his time was Laurits Andersen Ring, the Danish Realist and Symbolist painter, who is considered one of the most important painters in the decades around 1900.

The exhibition, titled On the Edge of the World: Masterworks by Laurits Andersen Ring from SMK—The National Gallery of Denmark, appeals to art lovers as well as Americans in general, as it portrays the life of many European emigrants settling in the U.S. around 1900.
