Working from the farmstead he built for his family in western Norway, Nikolai Astrup (1880–1928) painted vivid landscapes that were inspired as much by Nordic folklore as by his surroundings. This exhibition at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, is the first survey dedicated to the artist in the US (19 June–19 September). It comprises both his oil paintings and woodcuts inspired by the Japanese ukiyo-e prints the artist encountered as a student in Paris. Find out more from the Clark Art Institute’s website.
