Rising from Darkness - National Gallery of Denmark

The exhibition 
Rising from Darkness 
(17.09.2015 - 17.01.2016) focuses on six artists who shared a common interest in the human figure and the human condition in the post-war era: Palle Nielsen, Svend Wiig Hansen, Dan Sterup-Hansen, Reidar Magnus, Henry Heerup, and Erling Frederiksen. Their works have much to tell us about the anxiety, fear, insecurity and loneliness that many people felt during the years immediately after World War II and during the early stages of the Cold War.
