Saturday 4 May 2019 - Sunday 28 July 2019

The influence of the landscape, from the bewitching atmosphere of the aurora borealis to the white nights of the frozen north, has long played a key role in inspiring the art and design of Nordic countries.

Nordic by Nature explores how Finnish, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian artists and designers have created distinctive designs that are rooted in their nation’s nature, culture, traditions and industries.

From ice-like glassware to intricate woodcuts and atmospheric watercolours, discover over 40 examples of innovative and iconic paintings, print, craft and design from the collection of the British Museum.
