Art exhibition 2020

Mathilde Dietrichson

In the exhibition "Love stories" you get to know the pioneer Mathilde Dietrichson (1837–1921), the first Norwegian woman with a professional education.

This landmark exhibition showcases exquisite examples of art from the Golden Age, from genre motifs and urban landscape paintings to portraits. For the first time since her memorial exhibit in 1922, her diverse and exciting artistic production has been assembled in a larger exhibition.The works of arts tell the story of her love of life, art and family.

Dietrichson travelled around Europe and the Middle East, combining her artistic profession with the role of mother and wife. In doing this, she completely broke with what was common for women artists of her day. Also included in the exhibition is a selection of work by female artists who were her contemporaries.
