“Experience the history of Nesbyen through the eyes of the artists”
About Nesbyen Art Landsacpe
The project “Nesbyen’s Art Landscape” illustrates life in Nes during the mid-1800’s. It aims to illustrate the relationship between Nes in Hallingdal and national romanticism. The Hallingdal officials lived in Nes at this time and the Court of Hallingdal Judge, Ove Gude, moved into the “Sorenskrivergården” in 1843. His son, the painter Hans Gude, visited often and invited friends to stay with the family. They too were inspired by the beautiful scenery and the local people.
This building was the home of important artistic activity and will be a learning center for national romanticism. Take a walk along the “Gude trail” and visit the exhibition “Into the Art”. There are future plans to extend the centre to include other aspects of national romanticism.
