Erik Werenskiold

I saw so much beautiful art while we were in Scandinavia - modern right back to very ancient objects from pre-Christian Scandinavia, which were so very special to see. Amongst the many, many interesting works I saw was that of nineteenth century Norwegian artist Erik Werenskiold. As well as beautiful rural scenes, he also drew a number of illustrations under the title of "Olav Trygves√łns Saga". The National Museum of Oslo is certainly worth a visit.
