The anthology "Swedish Art History. A Selection of Introductory Texts" is the first extensive overview of Swedish art history written in English. The essays by Swedish scholars of art history present a broad and varied collection of texts including periodic overviews that cover prehistorical times to the 21st century, as well as thematic studies that introduce discussions on everything from political contexts, artists groups and organizations to aspects of gender, race, ethnicity and nationality. The reader is invited to a range of Swedish objects of study from rock carvings, political posters and contemporary performance art to medieval churches and railway stations. Each of the eighteen contributors gives their unique viewpoint on the subject and as a result, "Swedish Art History" invites you into a mosaic of possible readings on the visual culture of Sweden.
