At the heart of Munchmuseet’s collection is the extraordinary gift bequeathed by Edvard Munch to the people of Oslo in 1940, four years before he died. The bequest comprises a collection of nearly 28,000 paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures, and is unique worldwide. A less known fact is that the museum also owns three other art collections. These were also given to the public by private individuals, and together they provide a unique insight into almost a century of Norwegian art history. Our final exhibition before the museum moves to a brand new building will present works from all four collections alongside each other for the very first time.
