Open Call for Papers "Women in Arts" PASSEPARTOUT No. 37. (Spring 2015)

Passepartout is published semi-annually by the Department of Art History at the University of Aarhus. It is one of the largest peer-reviewed journals on art history and theory in Scandinavia. Each edition has a theme, inspired by current issues in art historical research and debate.

Karina Lykke Grand is responsible for a major research-based Golden Age exhibition at ARoS entitled GOLD – treasures from the Danish Golden Age. In the exhibition she gives us an entirely new perspective on the Golden Age.
Golden Age artists often used to paint each other at work. These paintings reflect their own self-image as lonely, hard-working individuals. But this was not the whole truth about their lives, explains assistant professor Karina Lykke Grand. The truth is that the artists liked company, and cafés were used to create small tourist enclaves. (Wilhelm Bendz, Bjerglandskab, approx. 1831. Oil on canvas, 28.9 x 33.9 cm. Belongs to the Hirschsprung Collection, Copenhagen. Photo: The Hirschsprung Collection.)
When the phenomenon of tourism arose in the Golden Age, an anti-tourism movement started as well. The anti-tourists often regarded tourists as lazy English noblemen who only went abroad to enjoy themselves. Wilhelm Marstrand, Rejsende i Venedig, 1854. Oil on paper, 35.3 x 26.4 cm.

When is a tourist not a tourist?

When the whole concept of tourism arose back in the Golden Age, there was also an anti-tourism movement. Artists rejected the idea of being streamlined tourists in favour of what they regarded as a more authentic form of travel. And the hunt for authenticity is still going on in the modern world.
