Isaac Grünewald and the decorative expressionism

3 Mar – 6 Aug 2023

In 2023 Gl. Holtegaard opens the exhibition IN THE REALM OF FANTASY : Isaac Grünewald and the decorative expressionism, a large solo presentation by the Swedish avant-garde artist Isaac Grünewald (1889-1946).

Isaac Grünewald was educated in Stockholm in 1905-08, and then studied with Henri Matisse at the Matisse Academy in Paris. The artist – with his unique, decorative expressionist style – played a central role as a pioneer of modernism in Sweden along with his first wife the artist Sigrid Hjertén and other avant-garde artists.

Grünewald’s works will be shown in a highly staged exhibition, where the background for the works is colors taken from Grünewald’s own sumptuous color palette.


All our exhibitions are accompanied by a programme of inspiring events, exploring and bringing a contemporary perspective to their themes and ideas.
