The sculptur, the soldier, and the mother : Ivar Johnsson ́s ”Arbete och livsbejakelse” (1939) (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats har berört Ivar Johnssons verk ”Arbete och Livsbejakelse” (1939) som finns placerad på fasaden av Östergötlands museum. Uppsatsens syfte är att beskriva verkets tillkomsthistoria samt undersöka dess relation till arbetartematiken och ideologi. Tillkomsthistorien har kunnat skrivas genom en redogörande genomgång av museibyggnadskommitteens protokoll samt samtida press. För undersökningen av verkets innehåll och motivbild har en analys gjorts med utgångspunkt från Erwin Panofskys och Jan- Gunnar Sjölins metoder. En diskussion görs efter analysen och resultatet visar att man kan se ideologiska tendenser i verket och att motiven kan ses följa arbetartematiken. 

Abstract [en]

This essay has touched Ivar Johnson's works "Arbete och livsbejakelse" (1939) which are placed on the facade of Östergötlands museum. The purpose of this thesis is to describe the history about the origin of the artwork and examine its relationship to the working-class themes and ideology. The history about the origin of the artwork has been written by a narrative review of protocol, from the comittee of museum building and the contemporary press. For the survey of the work's content and motives image, an analysis has been made based on Erwin Panofsky and Jan-Gunnar Sjölins methods. A discussion is made after the analysis and the results show that one can see the ideological tendencies in the work and that the motives can be seen following the work themes.
