Book that contains some 17 articles, the results of a five year research project where the work and influence of one Sigurður Guðmundsson, Sigurður málari (Sigurður the painter) as he was often referred to, and a secret society called Kvöldfélagið (The Evening Society) was being researched. You could easily add another five years of research followed by another book to do the man and the society´s influence on Icelandic culture justice. This book is a much awaited input into Icelandic cultural and art history.
