An icon in Norwegian visual art – Kaare Espolin Johnson (1907-1994)

Av Galleri Espolin

Storvågan • Lofoten

A journey through his images is to travel into a time which no other artists have been able to capture.

Even though many of the pictures display drudgery, darkness and poverty, they also exude human warmth, uncommon inner strength and faith. Allow yourself to be touched by Kaare Espolin Johnson’s expressive artistic force. He tells a dramatic story of local history about the destiny of the lives of the people living along the coast.

Galleri Espolin is home to an icon of Norwegian art.
