The Fresco Brothers and the Sisters of Liberty

The Decoration of Oslo City Hall 1938–1950

Oslo City Hall is known around the world as the venue for the presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize. The paintings, frescoes, carvings and tapestries that decorate its public spaces transform the building’s interior into a Gesamtkunstwerk on a vast scale, depicting the founding myths of modern Norway. Through artworks, preparatory sketches, photographs and archive material, this exhibition tells the story of how the City Hall’s extraordinary interior came to be.
