Design and Fashion: Norway 1814

Contact information

Description

To celebrate the bicentennial of Norway’s constitution, the National Museum is mounting three exhibitions under the common title Norway 1814. These exhibitions will explore the art of the period in a new light. Visitors will be able to view many works that have rarely if ever been shown in public before. Venues: The National Gallery, Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, and National Museum – Architecture.

In 1942 the Paleet was destroyed by fire. Following its demolition, this magnificent building was all but forgotten. But in the run-up to 1814, this was one of the most important buildings in Christiania – as a private home, as residence of the so-called Eidsvoll King, Christian Frederik, and finally as the first royal residence of Carl Johan in Norway.

Featuring interiors inspired by the Paléet, this exhibition explores the opulence of the Rococo and the sobriety of the Empire style, offering insights into the lives of leading figures and the culture of a period undergoing rapid change.
