The Biblical Cycle -Paintings for a Cathedral
St Magnus Cathedral 20 June - 4 August
Håkon Gullvåg is one of Norway's most prominent
exponents of contemporary, religious art. He is also known for
his portraiture, having painted many high-profile Norwegians,
with his official portraits of the King and Queen being the most
prominent. Originally created for Nidaros Cathedral, his
Biblical Cycle has toured to Jerusalem and following the
exhibition in St Magnus, it will go on to France and Poland.
Some of the pictures have been recreated specially to fit in St
Magnus and Håkon Gullvåg has created an altar-piece to St Magnus
as a permanent gift to the Cathedral.
Opening times: Mon - Sat: 09:00 - 18:00 and
Sun: 13:00 - 18:00
