Art from West Telemark

From the middle of the 18th century, the Norwegian romantic nationalism movement collected many motives that show nature and everyday life in Western Telemark.  However, this did not keep painters, like Henrik Sørensen and Harald Kihle from coming back yearning for more inspiration. 

Many artists have been born in Telemark, for example the four big sculptors: Gunnar UtsondDyre Vaa, Knut Skinnarland and Anne Grimdalen, no other region is comparable. 

From this region, some famous musicians and writors have become great in their arts, for example: writer and journalist Aasmund Olavsson Vinje and the musician Tarjei Augundsson, known as Myllarguten (meaning the Millerboy).
