Immerse yourself with the artist Kaare Espolin Johnson’s expressive power and explore the region’s dramatic history and life along the coast.

The grand scenery of Lofoten have inspired many artists through the years, but few are held in such high regard as Kaare Espolin Johnson (1907–1994). With his characteristic technique he portrayed the life along the coast, for many known through his illustrations to the novel The Last Viking by Johan Bojer. The Espolin Gallery houses a master within Norwegian art. Wander around in beautiful halls filled with Espolin’s work. See an impressive art collection and watch a beautiful film in which Espolin Johnson tells about his own work.
