In relation to the exhibition Jór! Horses in Icelandic Art, travel guide and a horse-woman Bergljót Rist, will give a lecture on the colours of the Icelandic Horse.

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.

The event will take place in Icelandic and is organized in collaboration with The Icelandic Equestrian Association.
