The National Gallery of the Faroe Islands is located in Tórshavn. As the National Gallery of the Faroe Islands, it is the principal museum of Faroese art.
Since 1930, Nordic art has acquired an extra voice, Faroese art, and it is flourishing in no uncertain terms.
Samuel Joensen-Mikines, Ruth Smith, Ingálvur av Reyni, Elinborg Lützen, Thomas Arge, Tróndur Patursson and Anker Mortensen are just a handful of the artists whose main works you can see at the National Gallery of the Faroe Islands.
Given that landscape painting is the principal theme of Faroese art, the Museum is the perfect place to visit, if you are looking for an artistic perspective on the stunning nature of the Faroe Islands.
The setting for the National Gallery of the Faroe Islands is a building featuring simple, understated architecture with a diligent use of timber.
The bright, uncluttered exhibition galleries allow the art to speak. Just as importantly, the scale of the Museum is not overwhelming, providing a sense of the overall picture and allowing space for contemplation.
The Museum is set in the park Viðarlundin, the largest plantation in the Faroe Islands, thereby enhancing the Museum’s amenity value.
If you are on foot, simply enter the park at the city-centre end. When you emerge, you will be at the Museum! If you are driving, follow the signs.
