Knut Skinnarland (1909-1993)

From 1948 he worked at the restoration of the Nidarosdomen cathedral in Trondheim. Other famous work of art by Knut Skinnarland is the “Fishermen’s monument” in Ålesund and in Akureyri at Iceland, as well as the monuments of A.O. Vinje and of Sondre Norheim.

Aslak Svalastog (1895-1970)
Aslak Svalastog was born in Rauland. His many sculptures and reliefs are influenced by daily life and poetry. His work of art is exhibited at the Skinnarland Collection, at “Raulandshuset” and at “Raulandsakademiet”.
