Now you'll find some of the most well known art works by Nikolai Astrup on Digitaltmuseum. More will come as we continue working with the collection consisting of more than 320 pieces of art. You can see 125 previously unpublished sketches. About half of them are most likely from when he studied in Paris in 1902. The sketchbook they are part of is stamped from an art shop for artists in the French capital and the motifs also seem to be from there. Astrup has drawn nudes and studied anatomy. Many of the sketches indicate that he probably has been in the Louvre and studied eg Egyptian antiquities. An eye-catching feature in the sketchbook, as in the other sketches, are all the depictions of animals, birds and plants.
