The Leonardo of Landscape Painting: Lars Hertervig and the Rejuvenation in Primal Images
Jan-Ove Tuv, Sebastian Salvo & Alastair Blain sit down to talk about the 19th century landscape painter Lars Hertervig and the mythic potential of the landscape.
Topics discussed in this episode:
- Hertervig’s dreamlike vision vs Constable’s recreation of soil
- Painting despite lack of social advantages
- Was Hertervig “insane” or highly intelligent?
- Rejuvenation in timeless images
- Hertervig’s clouds: pure fantasy, or did he actually look at nature?
- Myths describe reality way more accurately
- The advantages of painting landscapes in the studio
- Plein-air plus eighty five percent black
- Combining realism and symbols, empiricism and poetry
- Elements in the story that are too personal get cut away
- The subject has to strike you first, then it can become archetypal
- When your unconscious gets pretentious…
- Neurotic myth deniers
- Your love or interest for it makes it archetypal
