Adelsteen Normann - fra Bodo til Berlin

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A rare copy of an illustrated biography of one of Norway's most noted artists, by an equally eminent Norwegian art historian and museum director. Although the text is in Norwegian, there are many illustrations demonstrating the artist's skill and the development of his style from his first beginnings in Norway to Berlin, from where he issued the invitation to Munch (who painted 'The Scream' while there.

Eilert Adelsteen Normann (1848–1918) was a Norwegian painter who worked in Berlin, noted particularly for his landscapes of Norway. His fjord paintings are credited with making the Norwegian fjords a more popular tourist destination.

Anne Aaserud (1942–2017) was a Norwegian art historian and museum director, having begun her career at the National Gallery of Norway (1984-1994), graduating from the University of Oslo in 1993. From 1994 to 2008 she was director of the Northern Norway Art Museum in Tromsø. She was decorated Knight, First Class of the Order of St. Olav in 2008, for her contributions to cultural life in Northern Norway.

Our copy is in almost immaculate condition, its illustrated board covers unblemished, and showing no exterior signs of wear. Inside, dark blue endpapers enclose an equally immaculate textblock of glossy paper with many colour illustrations interspersed through the text.
