LARS HERTERVIG - Fragmenter, Arbeider på papir 1868-1902

LARS HERTERVIG (1808-1902)

Boken bygger på et forskningsprosjekt som omhandler kunstnerens sene arbeider på papir blant annet sett i lys av hans oppvekst i kvekermiljøet. Dette åpner for en religiøs tolkning av kunstnerens bilder.

Lars Hertervig (1830-1902) is considered to be one of the greatest and most original Norwegian artists of the 1800's. He studied in Düsseldorf under Hans Gude and was a most promising student. After being stricken by an attack of insanity while he was an art student in Düsseldorf, he moved back to his home town in the Stavanger region where he died in 1902, poor and forgotten as an artist. Hertervig's luminous portrayals of the nature of Ryfylke have a visionary and subjective quality which only posterity has been able to appreciate. His works have inspired a number of Norwegian contemporary artists.

Lars Hertervig's 175th anniversary is being marked by an extensive exhibition of works on paper which he completed between 1868 and 1902.The last 30 years of his life he was too impoverished to be able to afford to paint with oils on canvas. Works from the years in question are done with watercolours and gouache on paper that was originally intended for other purposes, such as wrapping paper, tobacco paper, bits of wallpaper or newspaper. In some of his pictures he builds up a thick foundation of layers and layers of pieces of different kinds of paper which he pastes together with home-cooked rye flour paste.

Pictures Which Weren't Painted for the Public
The pictures weren't painted for the public - many of them were probably not seen by anyone other than the artist himself. The subjects range from topographically accurate reproductions of Stavanger and its surroundings to dreamlike subjects with religious overtones. The exhibition consists of around 80 pieces of work where a large number come from private owners. 25 years have passed since the Artists Association's (Kunstnerforbundets) extensive exhibition of Lars Hertervig's works on paper and it is the first time The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design has presented such a broad assembly of the artist's work on paper. Some of the pictures on exhibit have never been shown before.

A Cooperative Effort
The choice of works exhibited was made by paper curator Kari Greve and art historian Holger Koefoed, both of whom have been working over time on an interdisciplinary research project on Hertervig's works on paper. The exhibition is a collaboration between Rogaland Art Museum, Bergen Art Museum and The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, and has been organized by Inger M. Renberg at the Rogaland Art Museum, Kari Greve at The National Museum and Knut Ormhaug at the Bergen Art Museum
