A delightful wander through Norwegian highlights, and one of the finest collections of art by Edvard Munch.
As one of the first collectors of Edvard Munch’s art, Rasmus Meyer purchased chief works from all periods of Munch’s oeuvre. In what is today one of the world’s most important collections of Munch’s art, you can find masterpieces such as ‘Jealousy’, ‘Melancholy’, ‘The Woman in Three Stages’ and ‘Evening on Karl Johan’.
In 1917 Rasmus Meyer’s children donated their father’s collection of art and historical furniture to the city of Bergen. Today, as part of KODE, the donation comprises one of the finest collections of art from the Norwegian ‘golden age’ (1880–1905). The beautiful museum building enables you to have a delightful wander through historical interiors from Bergen, plus to experience highlights from the careers of artists such as J.C. Dahl, Hans Gude, Christian Krohg, Harriet Backer, Erik Werenskiold and Gerhard Munthe.
