Gerhard Munthe, Norwegian Pioneer of Modernism

Although Gerhard Munthe (1849–1929) is probably best known as a painter, his most original, important contributions were in the areas of design and interior decoration.

In 1891 Gerhard Munthe said that Norway’s national industry did not incorporate any uniquely Norwegian pattern, but had borrowed everything from somewhere else. This “drew my attention to industry”, Munthe said, and he went on to create over eighty different designs for wallpaper, textiles, porcelain and graphic art. He later expanded his repertoire to encompass furniture, silver, book bindings, illustrations, typefaces and bookplates.
