Anna Ancher, Franciska Clausen and Dea Trier Mørch are artists that most people probably know or have heard of. What about Christine Løvmand, Edma Frølich Stage, Anna Klindt Sørensen, Ludovica Thornam and Rita Kernn-Larsen - do these artist names resonate? They belong to the large group of women in Danish art who have stood in the shadow of their male colleagues, and who are now being brought into the light - among other things via this book Breakthrough - so that we can get a more nuanced picture of Danish art history.
Based on many years of interest and collected knowledge about women in Danish art, art historian Eva Pohl presents a personal and perspectival overview.
Breakthrough offers an insight into the struggle of pioneers to enter the art scene and break through, presenting important movements and connections between generations and inspiring communities of artists. From traditional flower paintings, model studies and portraits to experimental works that work with body, space and memory.
