Carl & Marie – Book cover (Gyldendal)

The composer Carl Nielsen and the sculptor Anne Marie Brodersen met in Paris in March of 1891, married in Florence in May, and remained together until Nielsen’s death in 1931. This book contains 180 selected letters between the two, with commentary by Lotte Andersen and Amalie Kestler.

The cover is a fusion of two photographs*, resulting in a composite portrait of the couple. The central “&” is part of the title, but also bridges the other elements – the author’s names, the subtitle, and the portraits themselves.

Published by Gyldendal, 2018. Edited by Janne Breinholt Bak.
