Abstract [en]

The article is a main essay, "understreckare", in the Swedish daily morning paper Svenska Dagbladet, August 18 2011. It discusses the problem of general categories of style in interpretation of individual and esthetically specific artworks. Two examples are chosen: a painting by Björn Ahlgrensson from the Racksta colony of "national romantics" of the late 1890s in Värmland; and a late Baroque church decoration in Älgå church, also in Värmland, with two large angels shown as flying above the pulpit. The specific expressions of these two examples are discussed with questioning of general style categories.
