PICTURES from OSLO

Oslo the capitol of Norway is surrounded by forest and fjord. An important part of the city´s political tradition is to preserve the fjord and the area surrounding the city for leisure and outdoor pursuits. From backwater to one of the glittering cities of Europe. Restaurants, nightclubs, cafes, shopping complexes, and other places have opened.

 The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art  
Holmenkollen The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art is a privately owned Contemporary Art gallery in Oslo. The new building from 2012 by Architect Renzo Piano. The collection´s main focus is the American appropriation artists from the 1980s, but it is currently developing towards the international contemporary art scene.

The museum created a stir in the international art world in 2002 when it purchased the American artist Jeff Koons´s monumental sculpture in gilt porcelain of the pop star Michael Jackson with Bubbles, his favorite chimpanzee, for USD 5.1 million.
