 The Royal Blaafarveværk

Th. Kittelsen build his home Lauvlia in 1899. This artist is well known for his many illustrations of fairy tales, his depictions of trolls and his poetic landscapes.

The home is well preserved and represents the most important presentation of the artists life and work in Norway. Every year a new exhibition is organized considering a different aspect of production. Here the visitor can compare the paintings to the beautiful lake and mountains surrounding the home which inspired the artist to his most famous renderings. There is a guided tour of the exhibit.

Half an hour´s drive from Lauvlia, high in the hills above Eggedal Church, lies Christian Skredsvig´s home, Hagan. A remarkable house, made up of several ditferent buildings. Both house and contents are in much the same state as they were while the artist lived. On the walls hang his own paintings and drawings and those of friends and contemporaries. The unique collection contains about 150 works.

The magnificent natural surroundings have attracted artists and inspired many well known works of art. Sigdal and Eggedal has two of the best preserved homes of artists from the Golden Age of Norwegian art, Theodor Kittetsen´s home, Lauvlia, and Christian Skredsvig´s home, Hagan.
