This exhibition takes a look at one of the most renowned painters in the Swedish art world. Born in Norway before moving to Sweden as a child, Peter Dahl worked across eight decades, from the chaos of the post-war years to his (probable) last painting, a triple self-portrait in 2016. Dahl’s work covers a wide range, from scenes from bars and normal life to adventures in strangeness. “My subject matter hasn’t really changed since my teens”, he has said in a past interview, “They are baroque scenes and living room scenes”. This exhibition, curated by his son Christoffer, opens a door into the artist’s world.
