Artist Biography

Richard Bergh (1858-1919)

Richard Bergh played an important part in the development of Swedish Romanticism but his contribution to his native culture was not only as an artist; he was also an influential essayist, polemicist and administrator. His father, Edvard Bergh, was a distinguished landscape artist and Richard grew up in wealthy artistic surroundings in Stockholm, studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Art from 1878 to 1881. Thereafter he divided his time between Sweden and France, working in Paris, Grez-sur-Loing and on the coasts of Brittany and Normandy. He was instrumental in the artists’ revolt of 1885 against the conservatism of the Academy and the National Museum, and the following year founded the Artists’ Union. Bergh held strong views on art, believing that a disciplined study of an Artist’s own country was the basis for all art and that the representation of a country in art was inevitably bound up with ‘the mysterious and touching interweavings of memories, of vague feelings and imagination.’ In attempting to capture a genuine Nordic atmosphere Bergh did not, however, exclude all outside influence: his painting shows the impact of French artists, notably Puvis de Chavannes and Gauguin, and of Italian landscape and Renaissance art. ‘Nordic Summer Evening’ was painted between 1899 and 1900. The models were the singer Karin Pyk and the painter Prince Eugen, both of whom had been in Florence with Bergh two years earlier.
