Norwegian photographer John Olav Riise


John Olav Riise (1885-1978) was one of the Norwegian artists whose work had the strongest impact on the international arena, especially in France. He participated in the annual Salon in Paris from 1924 to 1932, and his work was highly regarded there. However, despite the many exhibitions he held, also in his homeland, he received very little media attention in Norway during his lifetime.The art historian Eva Klerck Gange gives the following overview of the artist’s work, and the position he held: Henie Onstad kunstsenter
