Welcome to an exhibition of art, inspired by and created in Hvitsten. Almost everyone from the heyday of Norwegian art worked and lived an artistic life here - Edvard Munch, Christian Krohg, Frits Thaulow, Oscar Wergeland, Hans Gude and Theodor Kittelsen, to name a few.
The golden age of Norwegian art at the end of the 19th century came to Hvitsten by coal and steam, by liner on the fjord and by train. It was a golden age both for the city's bourgeoisie and for the artists. It was a market for art. The steam engines, the technological revolution, brought them out into nature, transported out on the Christianiafjord.
To idyllic Hvitsten came government attorney Lasson with his entourage of beautiful and gifted daughters. With them came the whole herd of Christiania's bohemians, visual artists and literati. An elite of young, free people led by Oda and Christian Krohg and Frits Thaulow. Eventually also the young Edvard Munch.
They found a living community, here lived the people of the sea, sailors, pilots and fishermen. The sailing ships that had brought wealth and impulses from the big world were still here. Here there were traces of Dutch times, it was an economic golden age with lumber and exports of ice blocks. They found beautiful scenery, amazing sunsets and colorful people as models. Not least, they found each other. Christiania's golden age also became Hvitsten's golden age.
Meet them here, Ramme accommodates them all.
