Ensuite | Johan Christian Dahl
Every month I write an article for Switzerland's biggest cultural magazine, Ensuite.
This time my focus was on the meaning of the birch tree in Johan Christian Dahl's (1788 – 1857, Bergen, Norway) works. I reconsidered their interpretation as a national symbol and suggested a more differentiated view.
Enjoy! Or don't. But I hope you will feel a slight twinge of guilt next time this topic comes up at a dinner party and you remember that you did have the chance to polish up your knowledge and didn't take it.
