With his numerous churches, railway stations, hospitals and schools, the architect Heinrich Ernst Schirmer (1814–1887) played a key role in Norwegian nation building in the 19th century, even being trusted with the restoration of Norway’s pivotal monument, the Nidaros Cathedral. Despite his efforts, however, Schirmer was criticised by the subsequent generation for his ‘un-Norwegian’ attitude to architecture. Inquiring into this paradox, the article situates Schirmer in the intellectual context of the Christiania ‘Intelligentsia’.

This article focuses on Edvard Munch’s painting The Human Mountain/Towards the Light and its creation in Munch’s outdoor studio at Ekely in the second half of the 1920s. It reveals the way Munch worked to create the painting and gives a short presentation of the motif’s history in the artist’s production. The text con- centrates on three periods 1909–10, 1916–1919 and 1926–30, and also discusses the historical context of the paintings.

A 1936 caricature by Kai Fjell shows a meeting in the painter’s group, Sosialistisk Kulturfront (Socialist Culture Front), a meeting point for many of the better known Norwegian artists in the 1930s. The artists and other personalities pre- sent in Fjell’s caricature are identified. Some of their works of art are presented along with aspects of their aesthetic programs. This shows how a broad variety of views on the relationship of art to politics and society existed in an organization that was held together by the threat of fascism rather than by uniform aesthetics or even politics.

The architects Fredrik Arnesen and Arthur Darre Kaarbø were partners in a very productive firm/office during the inter-war period in Bergen. Three of their buildings, in particular, show elements of an architecture bordering on both late, abstract neo-classicism and an emerging decorative modernism; features often described as Art Deco. Is Art Deco just a short-lived and superficial style characterized by the use of exotic decorum and costly materials, or may this pheno- mena have a more extensive significance?

The City of Oslo has more than 1100 permanent artistic decorations in its possession. Some of them were created in the 19th century but the majority were carried out from the second half of the last century and up to the present day. Some were donated by citizens, but since 1945 the city’s political government has taken an increasing responsibility for presenting substantial permanent decorations. Consequently these decorations may reflect ordinary people’s artistic tastes, but are more likely to reflect the various political and artistic ideals typical of this period.
