 Edvard Munch

Åsgårdstrand is best known as the place where Edvard Munch painted "The Girls on the Bridge". The reason for this is the very special light which the best artists either went to Åsgårdstrand in Vestfold or Skagen in Denmark to experience..

Åsgårdstrand was increasingly known as an important center for artists and painters and since the 1880s a vast number of internationally famous painters has either visited or lived in the town. Painters like Edvard Munch, Christian Krogh and Hans Heyerdahl. Edvard Munch bought a 18th century mariners house at Åsgårdstrand in 1897. Munch used the house as a summer home and studio up until his death in 1944.
