Nils Dardel and the Modern Age


Nils Dardel is one of Sweden’s most popular artists. The Moderna Museet’s exhibition Nils Dardel and the Modern Age stresses that Dardel was not just a dandyish eccentric in the salons of high society. In fact, he took part actively in the cosmopolitan avant-garde in Paris and used art to convey the early 20th century jazz era and the modern approach to all kinds of human relationships.
The exhibition features some 100 works – including several iconic works such as The Dying Dandy (1918), Visit to an Eccentric Lady (1921), Crime of Passion (1921), and The Waterfall (1921) – mostly paintings and drawings, but also Nils Dardel’s palette, programmes from the Ballets suédois and a stage model and the score for the ballet The Madhouse.

The exhibtion runs 29 May 2014 – 14 September 2014 at Moderna Museet
