A Guide to the Heart of Iceland
Of the many ways to understand a foreign culture, examining its art has to be one of the most pleasing, but grasping the history and tradition of a nation can appear to be a daunting task for newcomers. That’s why the Reykjavik Art Museum will be giving weekly guided tours in Kjarvalsstaðir, one of the museum’s three locations, where visitors will be guided through over 200 paintings from some of Iceland’s most celebrated artists.
Kjarvalsstaðir
The exhibition is called Icelandic Art 1900-1950: From Landscape to Abstract Art. Over 200 pieces from 40 artists from the period are on display, divided into four subjects: Romantic and Radical (1900-1930); Landscape (1930-1950); The Human Scale (1930-1950) and New radicalism and the beginning of the abstract (1940-1950). As the subjects imply, there is a lot to take in and the significance of each period and each artist would perhaps be lost for those passing through, although the paintings would be no less striking. The guided tours are included in the regular ticket price and will be given each Friday at 11 am. Kjarvalsstaðir takes its name from one of Iceland’s most celebrated artists. (He’s the gentleman on the 2000 kr. Bill.) It houses a sizable collection of his works. Be sure to linger a while at a painting named Fjallamjólk, as few other paintings have captured Iceland’s nature in a more memorable fashion.
