Jór! Horses in Icelandic Art

7 May – 21 August 2011

Kjarvalsstaðir

The exhibition is curated by arthistorian Adalsteinn Ingólfsson. The horse has been an important subject to Icelandic artists from the beginning, either as the center focus in a painting or as a supporting role in landscape paintings. On show are oil paintings and three dimensional works by Iceland’s most distinguished artists from the beginning of the 20th century to present days, presenting the horse from different angles.
