Nordic Impressions, featuring 8 Icelandic artists including Katrín Sigurðardóttir, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir (Shoplifter), Eggert Pétursson, Þórarinn B. Þorláksson, Olafur Eliasson, Jóhannes Sveinsson Kjarval, Ragnar Kjartansson, and Sigurður Guðmundsson, is a major survey of Nordic art spanning nearly 200 years.

The exhibition, on view at The Phillips Collection in the US capital – Washington DC until January 13, celebrates the incredible artistic diversity of Nordic art, from idealized paintings of the distinctive Nordic light and untouched landscape to melancholic portraits in quiet interiors and mesmerizing video works that explore the human condition. The exhibition is a result of five years of close cooperation between the Nordic embassies in Washington DC and the Phillips Collection.
