Art in Oslo

Exterior of art glaaery OsloTo commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch, Oslo is proud to present Munch150.

This fabulous exhibition of 220 artworks is being hosted by the Munch Museum and the National Gallery. It will run throughout the summer until October.

Undoubtedly one of the most well-known figures in the modernist art movement, Munch was very must concerned with the human psyche. He recreated his most famous work - The Scream – several times. One of these paintings was stolen in 2004, only to be recovered two years later with thankfully little damage, another recently sold in New York for £73,921,284.

With the exception of a couple of decades spent travelling and exhibiting, Munch (born on the 12th December 1863) lived in Oslo his entire life. It comes as little surprise then that the Norwegian capital is going all out to celebrate the works of their famous son.

During Munch150, artworks created between 1882 and 1903 will be on display in the National Gallery, whilst the later works (up to 1944) will be shown in the Munch Museum.

You can combine a trip to this fabulous exhibition with a host of other wonderful attractions on our Norway in a Nutshell tour.
