Trondheim - home of the painters
Painters have always had a prominent position in the city. A lot of the most famous painters in the country come from Trondheim and Trøndelag, among others names like Håkon Bleken, Jakob Weidemann, Inger Sitter, Lars Tiller, Roar Wold, Kjell Erik Killi Olsen and Håkon Gullvåg.
From 16th June - 15th September 2002, the Trondheim Museum of Art will have an extensive exhibition of Inger Sitter's works. It will be a retrospective exhibition with pictures from 1943 to 2001. The pictures are abstract yet they play, in one way or another, on outward, recognizable themes.
In addition, the museum has a presentation of its regular collection, with famous contributions from Adolph Tidemand, Peder Balke, Christian Krohg, Harald Solberg, Harriet Backer and others. A visit to the museum's shop and cafe is also recommended.
