The “Impressions: Five Centuries of Woodcuts” exhibition, set to open on 6 November at the National Gallery, will showcase a wide array of Norwegian and international woodcuts.
The selection is wide-ranging, spanning from Albrecht Dürer to a newly produced installation by Thomas Kilpper. The exhibition will feature woodcuts by artists such as Hanne Borchgrevink, Tore Hansen, the Kierulf sisters, and Mamma Andersson. 
It will also display exquisitely executed Japanese colour woodcuts from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Though the formats and styles vary greatly, the works are linked by their use of graphic techniques. See museum homepages for pictures and video presentation.
