"You want to crawl into his bewildering krogmiljöer just one very last time"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"Every year, Aftonbladet party at the home of Peter Dahl. "
"Not literally. But it definitely feels so. We are organizing our annual cultural festival visits the Tuesday club, an exciting, easy secret and all-male bastion, which for many years had member Peter Dahl as the center of gravity. In addition, it is a cheap party room, should well be added."
"One floor below is Konstnärsbaren characterized at least as much of Dahl's presence. Known from his paintings and his lithographs on the wall."
"Wait now. Another classic stockholmskrog to must be mentioned: the French bistro Wasahof, founded in 1899, where so many men of culture held court through the years – the Swedish academy, the slayer of Jean-Claude Arnault, not the least. And Dahl, of course. His paintings adorn the restaurant's own champagne."
"anyone who wants to find the traces of Dahl in the Stockholm night life, no problems. And anyone that wants to find bars in his late art has an equally easy task. "
"nLika of course, that Peter Dahl was the anachronistic konstnärsklubbens nestor, he was stockholmskrogarnas patron saint."
"He incarnated namely the Artist, with large K, in the Swedish consciousness. A figure that is becoming increasingly rare. "
"He was a painter who carried with him a fan of the old Europe, a Toulouse-Lautrec for the nouveau riche 80's whose flyhänta romance not only made him an artist for the rich (at times, his paintings raised a significant amount of the auction houses), he also became popular. not least through its series of reasonably priced lithographs that bildsatte the greatest krogromantikern of them all – Carl Michael Bellman."
"That Ulrika Stahre wrote in their review of his last major exhibition, so there is a prophetic quality in the decadent krogskildringarna. As if the 80's and 90's just would be a new mellankrigstid."
"It is easy to shudder at the thought."
"His konstnärsmyt deserved he to play according to the rule book. "
"As a young and radical, he was accused of crimes under lèse majesté, for a picture where the princess Sibylla showed snippan. A type of scandal which perhaps was possible only in the old Europe. 35 years later he received the king's medal. In between, he invited his fans on a painting that gave themselves over to sex, booze and burleskerier. A kind of vardagsrumsbarock, was his own analysis."
"It is close at hand to thank Peter Dahl by to raise a pint tonight. Perhaps we need to not party as it would be in 1899, but of course you want to crawl into his warm researched, bewildering krogmiljöer a very last time, now when the present out there become so damned cold. "
