The human condition, eroticism, and melancholy were constant themes in the artistry of Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943). His sculptures are characterized by an intense harshness, often with dark and complex motives, and they portray the intricate nature of emotional life and human relations.

After living a Bohemian life in Europe in the 1890s, Vigeland came back to Norway to create portraits and innovative monuments during the beginning of the 20th-century. The last decade of his artistry was dominated by the immense project of the Vigeland installation in Frogner Park, Oslo – an installation that, to this day, still attracts a great number of visitors.
