ICELANDIC ART III

Paintings by Guðmundur Thorsteinsson (Muggur) (1891-1924), Kristín Jónsdóttir (1888-1959) and Júlíana Sveinsdóttir (1889-1966) as well as a sculpture by the sculptor Nína Sæmundsson (1892-1965)  are the motifs of the Icelandic art stamps this year.
 
Works by Guðmundur are characterized by a gentle sense of humour and wistfulness. Kristín, who was the first Icelandic woman to turn professional painter, created a concise pictorial world for herself out of everyday phenomena. Nína's reaction to the cataclysm of World War I was to turn her back on avant-garde art and seek to create modern sculptures based on traditional premises. Júlíana started as a landscape painter, but in time she developed a personal view of nature, based on lyricism rather than austere formalism.
