Harald Slott-Møller


It is spring in Italy. The sun is setting over the mountains near Fiesole north of Florence. A young couple are sitting on a bench at a table, waiting for their evening meal. The woman offers the man a drink from her wineglass and he looks adoringly at her. But the picture is about more than the love we immediately see. There is also a reference to the ancient myth of the Fall of Man, the story of Adam and Eve, in which the woman tempts the man and thereby becomes the cause of human suffering. Harald Slott-Møller’s paintings are symbolist in style, and their sensitively ornamented surface hides several layers of meaning.
