A collection of paintings and prints in blazing hues by the visionary Norwegian artist.


Frans Widerberg (born Oslo 1934) has created an alternative world populated by an extraordinary cast of characters; men and women, winged dogs, horses, snakes — a strange menagerie which has materialised from dreams or nightmares. In this world the laws of gravity do not apply: figures hover, levitate or swoop and dive, and colour is reduced to saturated, blazing primaries. Widerberg has been described as the natural successor to Edvard Munch due to his visionary and emotive style.
