City scapes – The history of Oslo/Christiania shown by artists

January 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Special Events Committee has the pleasure of inviting you to a beautiful and historically interesting exhibition at Bymuseet, the Museum of Oslo at Frogner park. The exhibition illustrates, through paintings, how the city of Oslo/Christiania has changed and developed through the last three hundred years.

Especially three periods are in focus: the time after the city fire in 1642, the industrial revolution, and the time after the dissolution of the union with Sweden in 1905.

In Cityscapes – Capturing Oslo, you will get to know the city through the artists’ views and brushstrokes. You can enjoy works by well-known artists such as Peder Balke and Edvard Munch, as well as less established painters. The paintings come mostly from Oslo Museum’s art collection.

Refreshments are available at the museum’s café.
