Nikolai Astrup – Visions of Norwegian Nature


Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde

2022-02-19 — 2022-05-29

The innovative Norwegian artist Nikolai Astrup (1880–1928) is well known and loved in his own country, but so far less noted outside Norway. This will be the first monographic exhibition featuring the artist in Sweden.

At Waldemarsudde, from February 19 to May 29, you have the opportunity to discover Astrup’s colorful and atmospheric landscape painting from Jølster in Norway, where he grew up, but also to experience his suggestive graphic work. Like his contemporary artist colleague Edvard Munch, Nikolai Astrup developed and renewed the expressive possibilities of the woodcut.

The exhibition includes about a hundred works, mainly oil paintings and woodcuts, and is complemented by a richly illustrated catalogue with articles by a number of prominent experts from Norway, the USA and Sweden as well as an introductory essay by the author Karl Ove Knausgård. The exhibition is also complemented by interesting lectures, guided tours and concerts as well as by a small presentation in the Bernadotte Room of paintings by Prince Eugens with Norwegian motifs and by works by Norwegian artists from the museum’s own collections.
