Surveying the singular figurative oeuvre of an internationally acclaimed Norwegian painter whose style and techniques emulate those of Rembrandt, Caravaggio and other Old Masters, this catalogue showcases 113 oils executed by Nerdrum (b. 1944) from 1965 to 1998, including brooding portraits and self-portraits as well as many darkly allegorical narrative compositions featuring desolate landscapes populated with archetypal figures. Excellent reproductions and numerous detail views of the featured paintings accompany an extensive text examining the existential themes embodied in Nerdrum's work and exploring the autobiographical aspects of his unsettling imagery.
