Guest: Peter Titelbech, Danish Art Dealer, Carl Bloch Expert Danish artist Carl Bloch is best known for his large, emotional paintings of scenes from the life of Jesus Christ. But Carl Bloch was also an accomplished printmaker, able to imbue inky scratches on a metal plate with just as much emotion as his large paintings. Dozens of them are currently on display at the BYU Museum of Art in an exhibit called “Lasting Impressions: Etchings and Drawings by Carl Bloch.” I had the chance to tour the exhibit with Danish art dealer and Carl Bloch expert Peter Titelbech who says the etchings are a window on what mattered most to Bloch.
