Edvard Munch's studio at Ekely

In 1916, Edvard Munch bought the estate Ekely outside Oslo. He lived and worked at Ekely for 28 years.

Edvard Munch's studio at Ekely in Oslo is among the most important and authentic cultural monuments after the artist.

In 1916, Munch bought the 45-acre gardening property Ekely. He lived there for 28 years, until his death in 1944.

The studio was built in two stages: The first in 1919–20 after Arneberg's drawings. The second stage of construction was completed in 1929 by Munch’s friend, architect Henrik Bull.

After the transfer of the Winter Studio and the studio plot from the municipality of Oslo, the Edvard Munch Atelier Foundation was established in 1990. Both the building and the studio garden were protected in 1997.

The foundation's purpose is to preserve Edvard Munch's studio as an international cultural monument. Artists can, upon application, rent the two studio rooms and the graphics workshop for creative activities.

The studio is only open at announced exhibitions and events.
