Olof Sager-Nelson's relation to the symbolist movement in Belgium (English)
Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen behandlar målaren Olof Sager-Nelsons relation till den belgiska symbolismen. Med utgångspunkt i ett antal analyser, av verk skapade i Belgien somrarna 1894 och 1895, diskuteras kopplingar mellan Olof Sager-Nelson och de främsta belgiska konstnärerna och författarna inom den symbolistiska rörelsen. Slutsatsen är att Sager-Nelson var mycket starkt påverkad av Georges Rodenbach, och dennes roman Bruges-la-Morte, men att han i övrigt inte i någon större utsträckning var influerad av belgiska symbolister.

Abstract [en]

This paper deals with the painter Olof Sager-Nelson's relation to the symbolist movement in Belgium. Based on a number of analyses of paintings created in Belgium in the summers of 1894 and 1895, the links between Olof Sager-Nelson and the leading Belgian artists and writers of the symbolist movement are discussed. The conclusion is that Sager-Nelson was strongly influenced by Georges Rodenbach, and his novel Bruges-la-Morte, but that he wasn't otherwise influenced by Belgian symbolists to any great extent.
