The first ever exhibition outside of Norway of Harald Sohlberg, one of the greatest masters of landscape painting in the history of Norwegian art.

Timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Sohlberg’s birth, it will bring together over 90 works, including archive material, to reveal the importance of colour and symbolism in his art as well as his unwavering passion for the Nordic landscape.

Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway is arranged chronologically, tracing the breadth of Sohlberg’s artistic career, from his earliest production as a twenty-year-old in 1889 through to the last year of his life, and reveals influences such as Norwegian Naturalism and Neo-romanticism.

It showcases his most accomplished works including the atmospheric Fisherman’s Cottage (1906) on loan from the Art Institute of Chicago, and arguably his most ambitious work, widely considered to be the ‘national painting of Norway’, Winter Night in the Mountains (1914), of which he created many studies and variations.

The exhibition is guest curated by Kathleen Soriano, independent curator, author, broadcaster, and expert judge of Sky Arts ‘Artist of the Year’.
