Edvard Munch #9


1916

"Edvard Munch bought the estate Ekely, a former plant nursery at Skøyen on the outskirts of Oslo, in 1916. Ekely became his permanent residence until his death in 1944, and here he finally had enough space for his work. It consisted of two buildings, a main house, and studios, built especially for him after own drawings by his architect friend. It has fantastic high half glass ceiling giving cold luminous atmosphere of norwegian sun.

After artis’t death the main building got demolished and the studios stood in ruins until recently, when Munch Museum gave support to open studios for visitors."
