“Experience the history of Nesbyen through the eyes of the artists”
About Nesbyen Art Landsacpe
In Art Landscape Nesbyen you can experience life in Old Nes around the middle of the 19th century, and how Nesbyen and Hallingdal inspired several well-known artists who worked within the period of national romanticism. Art Landscape Nesbyen is located in historic Sorenskrivergården, the seat of the Court of Hallingdal Judge. From 1843, the Judge was Ove Gude, the father of famous painter Hans Gude. Hans Gude visited his parents there many times, and brought along several of his artist friends. They all found inspiration in the nature and people they found in Nesbyen.
