The dark atmosphere of Alfredo Andersen’s work (1860–1935), a common feature among Nordic painters, was replaced by a teeming nature and by great luminosity during the years in which the Norwegian painter lived and produced in Brazil (1893 through 1935). The exhibition covered his entire artistic career, whose creative phases are marked by different pictorial treatments and themes. Andersen was the person who most encouraged the arts in the state of Paraná, and as a teacher was responsible for shaping an entire generation of artists in Paraná. Curated by Amarilis Puppi.
