Kjarval – Warrior Maidens and Ships of Fancy – Curator’s Talk. Kjarvalsstaðir – Sunday 7 February 3 p.m.

Jóhannes S. Kjarval, Án titils

The drawings and sketches in the Reykjavík Art Museum’s Kjarval collection number in the thousands. In recent months Reykjavík Art Museum has been making these works available in digital form to facilitate research on Kjarval’s oeuvre and a closer examination of specific subjects in his work. Warrior maidens and boats are frequent subjects in Kjarval’s small drawings and sketches, some of which are here exhibited for the first time; the exhibition also illustrates how these subjects resurface in his paintings. In Icelandic.
