Faroese art history and contemporary art

From a historical viewpoint, fine arts in the Faroe Islands are quite a modern phenomenon. Although Faroese painters were active from the end of the 19th century, Faroese art does not reach a high level until the 1930s.

The new part of the Gallery (1993) contains exhibits of Faroese fine arts from 1930 until today.

All these works - figurative, abstract or somewhere in between - show as a typical Faroese world of motives. The display is basically in chronological order, with some sidesteps.

The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 13 a.m. to 4 p.m. Also on holidays
