 Freia chocolate factory

Freiasalen is another space in Oslo decorated by Munch. In 1920, Munch was asked by director Johan Throne Holst to decorate one of the dining halls at the Freia chocolate factory. Munch painted a series of 12 paintings, known as the Freia frieze. The paintings are bright and vital with motifs taken from everyday situations in the areas of Kragerø and Åsgårdsstrand.

Freiasalen substituted for the old dining hall in 1934, and the frieze was moved here. The hall is still used as a cafeteria for the employees of the chocolate factory. Visits are limited to pre-booked guided tours, as well as a few concerts and open events.

No pictures of the paintings available.
