20 October 2005 - 9 February 2006

The exhibition is the Vigeland Museum´s contribution to the 100-year jubilee marking the solution of the Union with Sweden. Gustav Vigeland was an excellent portrait maker.

The exhibition consists of portrait busts, sketches for monuments and drawings of prominent persons at the turn of the century, such as King Oscar II, the author Henrik Ibsen and the explorer Fridtjof Nansen. The art works are all made in the years between 1890 and 1910. Some photographs will also be on display, giving a sense of the atmosphere of the period.

Exhibition curator: Anne Høegh Brand.
