A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

In Lady Barclay’s Salon

Moderna Museet / Stockholm / Art

Dark haired, almond eyed, and irresistibly charming, Lady Sarita Enriqueta Barclay was an influential figure of Stockholm’s Pictorialism movement. Captivated by the experimental nature of Swedish art during the fin de siècle, she hosted elaborate viewings and events, and was photographed often. Known for diffused light, sepia tones, and romanticism, the impressionistic photographs of the era capture a cultural moment in Swedish history. Featuring over 300 photographs and paintings by artists such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Ferdinand Flodin, and John Hertzberg, the exhibition invites visitors to take part in a fictional gathering, imagining themselves as guests in the drawing room of Henry B. Goodwin’s muse, Lady Barclay. —Kausaur Fahimuddin
