THE LIVING ROOM | DECK 1 ØRNULF OPDAHL 1944 • NORWAY • OIL ON CANVAS Ørnulf Opdahl’s interpretation of the dramatic landscape of western Norway has been popular with a large audience for decades, and Opdahl is often referred to as the great romantic in Norwegian contemporary art, renewing the Norwegian landscape painting in the tradition of Old Masters such as J.C. Dahl and Peder Balke. A mixture of concrete experiences and abstract impressions converge in his quest to capture this majestic landscape and its changing atmospheres, outside his studio on the rugged west coast of Norway, in a language most Norwegians understand and recognize. Opdahl was a professor at the Academy of Fine Art in Oslo for several years, and his paintings are acquired in most public art collections in Norway. LIGHT | 2018 26
