Sybergland revisited by the The artists’ group, the Land Painters

A hundred years ago, poet Otto Gelsted and artist Fritz Syberg walked up to the little burial mound at the top of Over Kærby Hill, where Fritz burst out: “From here it’s just as pretty on all four sides!”

This is the area that Gelsted called “Sybergland”.

From this hill, Syberg could look out on most of his artistic universe. Here are the fields with their poplar hedgerows with a view of two different fjords, that became iconic in the landscape art of the 1920’s and ’30’s. They made Syberg into the leading painter in his field.

Today, parts of this landscape have changed. Some of it is built up with houses, some of it is now a golf course and some of it is a recreational area with a lake and a creek. But within walking and cycling distance from here, the landscape that inspired Syberg still exists.

The artists’ group, the Land Painters, have visited this same area and offer, with their works of art, an exhibition that makes a bid for a contemporary interpretation of the landscape that stood so close to Fritz Syberg’s heart.

 

The opening is on Dec. 14th. Time will soon be announced.

Everyone is welcome!
