Description

KODE Art Museums of Bergen exhibits the second largest collection of Munch paintings in the world outside of Oslo. From an art historical perspective, the collection is unique because it exhibits works from all the major paradigms in Edvard Munch’s artistic career.

The collection in Bergen consists of more than 100 paper works and 50 paintings. Most of the works are part of the collection of Rasmus Meyer, whom acquired a number of major works by Norwegian artists towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Several of the paper works have not been available for the public in 20 years. One of the works is a unique version of Scream, which Munch drew with pen and ink. This smaller scale version of Scream will be one of the jewels in the new Munch museum.

The rest of the Rasmus Meyer Collection consists of a very special collection of art from the Golden Age of Norwegian art, as well as historical interior design. The building has been extensively renovated over the last year, and has now emerged in new splendor.
