OLD TREASURES

  • 8.2.2013 - 5.5.2013, Listasafn Íslands

The National Gallery of Iceland contains various artworks within its collection which too seldom are shown because of limitations of exhibition space. Often older art in the collection of the National Gallery is the victim of these restrictions, works of artists who are not protected by copyright anymore. These are numerous works by Icelandic and foreign artists who passed away before the middle of the Second World War. A part of these treasures is now on display in order to shed light on a part of the collection of the National Gallery of Iceland.
