A new and welcome addition to the historical part of the collection is Holmestrand artist Harriet Backer’s still life popularly called “The Eternal Picture”, which she painted over a twelve-year period until just before her death in 1932. The exhibition also gives visitors a chance to become reacquainted with the work of Matthias Stoltenberg, Oluf Wold-Torne and Thorolf Holmboe.

 

The selection is otherwise dominated by Norwegian contemporary art, beginning with the recently acquired painting No 1, 1961 by Anna-Eva Bergman. In addition, the display presents works by three artists with whom Haugar’s visitors will be well acquainted: Odd Nerdrum, Kjartan Slettemark and Bjarne Melgaard, including a premiere showing of two newly acquired paintings by Odd Nerdrum. We have also brought forth works by painters such as Kjell Nupen, Peter Esdaile, Kjell Torriset and Leonard Rickhard, in addition to photographs by Dag Alveng and Torbjørn Rødland, among others.
