Dahl, Peter

Peter Dahl (1934-2019) was a painter, graphic artist, sculptor and writer. He painted in an expressive realistic style with bright colors, sensual figure compositions with a critical perspective on the luxury of the upper class and the petty-bourgeois environment. Through his socially critical and sensational images, he became known as the great provocateur in Swedish art. Inspired by Francis Bacon's expressionism, he depicted in a suite of images the sequence of events in Medelsvensson's daydreams about "the sweet life", in social group one. Over the years, Dahl has continued with theme painting. In 1981-84 he illustrated "Fredman's Epistles", all lithographs were shown on a tour during 1984 in pure Bellman spirit. It was with the epistles that the breakthrough came as an artist for Peter Dahl with his congenial illustrations. He is outgoing and likes to describe his own life with sprinkles of self-irony. There is a Swedish tradition in his painting, he likes to take up the old and renew it. In recent years, his style has become softer and more sensual, his dance and bacchanal motifs have been influenced by Rococo. Peter Dahl is one of the truly great artists of our time.
