Dekorasjonsmaling: Decorative painting in the North-Eastern Valley and the Roros villages by Amund Spangen
Painted furniture and household items are presented in text and pictures, giving an insight into farm history and way of life from the time when skilled painters were active in Norwegian settlements.
The decorative painters rarely signed their works, and many authors have long remained anonymous. Motive, handwriting, and painting method have nevertheless made it possible to identify several. Get to know prominent folk artists like Solan Jonsen Ostgaard, Ole Andersen Beitdokken, Sovis Olsen Holemoen, and a host of others. The book is the result of research and registrations, supplemented by the author's own full color photographs.
