Shifting Landscapes - Sharing the Lund University Art Collection

The Lund University Art Collection can be described as the University’s visual memory. As is the case for many universities with large collections, mainly in the Anglo-American world, the purpose of the collection has been to encourage students’ understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with works of art. In this exhibition, a selection of works from the collection, ranging from the fifteenth century to our time, is made accessible to the public for the first time in a very long period. The selection reflects the scope of the collection, but also its focus on Swedish art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as well as seventeenth-century Dutch painting.
