The Manor House from 1665 between fjord, glacier, mountains and waterfalls

The Manor from 1665

The Manor from 1665

In 1658 there was a wedding between Norway’s wealthiest heir, Karen Mowat and a poor but proud Danish nobleman. Karen Mowat and Ludvig Rosenkrantz were given the farm Hatteberg as a wedding present. They built their home here, and called it Rosendal. It was finished in 1665. A guided tour at Baroniet Rosendal is a tour through different epochs. The rooms are influenced by owners over 250 years, and the manor is preserved as a home – the way it was when the last owners left in 1927. Read more

Art Exhibition 2022

Olav Christopher Jenssen (1954-) lives and works in Germany, and today he is quite as much a part of the German art world as the Norwegian. He began his career painting figurative pictures, but during the 1980s he created paintings that oscillate between figurative and non-figurative images, without being either or. Neither is he a romantic with a desire to paint the inexpressible, but an artist who is interested in what, in fact, can be conveyed in colour and form, rhythm and brushwork. This said, he also explores the limits of what can be expressed, and his artistic production of graphics, drawings, paintings, relief work and installations throw light on the process that carries expression. Primarily, this takes place on the surface, but disappears into what seems like deep space located far away or far below.

The music from our time will be represented by two generations of playful and fascinating personalities from Western Norway, composer Ketil Hvoslef and composer/saxophonist Marius Neset, whilst this year’s exhibition is dedicated to Norwegian artist Olav Christopher Jenssen.
