"Many here, myself included,..." Oslo Local Custom Tip by Trollconsult

Oslo Local Customs: 147 reviews and 243 photos

Many here, myself included, has pointed out the work of Gustav Vigeland, who populated a whole park with grey granite figures growing bulikier and bulkier as he became a greater artist in all senses of the word. But I must also mention the work of his younger brother, Emmanuel Vigeland, which is sadly overlooked by many. See the homepage of his museum at: http://www.emanuelvigeland.museum.no/museum.htm
If either the Vigeland brothers knew the meaning of the word 'understatement', it was not one that need be uttered often around their work.
