Nikolai Astrup (1880-1928) was a Norwegian Expressionist artist known for colorful paintings and woodcuts of his native landscape. Astrup received a formal art education in Kristiania (now Oslo), Germany, and Paris, but he later rebelled against certain aspects of his training, such as traditional color theory and conventions of optical perspective. He rejected metropolitan cultural centers in favor of his rural childhood home in western Norway, where he produced a remarkable body of work. This volume brings Astrup's life and work to a North American audience, situating him within the history of Norway and late 19th- and early 20th-century art. Astrup's horticultural innovations on the farmstead where he lived are also explored. The book's beautiful illustrations highlight the intensity of Astrup's palette, the innovative nature of his prints, and the magical realism of his landscapes steeped in ancient folklore and local customs.
