Landscapes and Communities

This section explores the increasing attraction towards the nature and landscape of Scandinavia, also reflected in the growing number of British travel accounts featuring the Scandinavian countries from the end of the eighteenth century onwards. 

Translation and Remediation

In this section of this exhibition, we showcase items relating to the the international contribution of leading Scandinavian artists and authors and the process that led to the acknowledgement of their works (in Britain and beyond).

Teaching and Research

The items collected in this section of the exhibition are representative of individual connections and instances that have led to the consolidation and development of the ties between the UK and Scandinavia in the context of research and teaching.
