Francesco Negri was an Italian clergyman who travelled in Scandinavia in 1664 – 65 and wrote many letters describing the native people of the North. He was also the first after Olaus Magnus to mention skiing. He first travelled through Sweden to Denmark where he met King Fredrik III, and then along the Norwegian coast from Bergen – Trondheim (including a visit to Østraat and Ove Bjelke) – Bjørnør – Næø – Torghatten – Rødø – Malstrømmen. He was the first Italian to reach the North Cape, and in the North Cape Centre there is an exhibition vitrine displaying different scenes from Negri’s visit.

Part one covers Lapland, part five, six and seven describe his travels in Norway and the last is devoted to Finnmark and the North Cape. Francesco Negri’s work has always been regarded as a rare book. A second edition, also very rare, was published in 1701. Provenance: Bookplate J.O. Wedberg.

PARIS c. 1842 – 1856 A FINE AND COMPLETE COPY OF THE MOST EXTENSIVE LITHOGRAPHED WORK ON SCANDINAVIA, SPITSBERGEN, RUSSIA AND THE BALTIC COUNTRIES. The monumental work presented in the catalogue is the account of the French expedition to the north which took place from 1838 – 40 under the command of the French marine doctor Paul J. Gaimard. The expedition was later commonly known as “La Recherche”. La Recherche was the headquarter ship for the expedition participants. Though the enterprise was initiated by the French and was supported by King Louis-Philippe, it is regarded as one of the first international cooperation expeditions in the history. Several Norwegian participants joined the expedition and entered “La Recherche” when the ship arrived along the coast of Norway. Schiøtz I lists 28 names of participants from France, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. AN IMPRESSIVE COLLECTION OF PLATES: They include topographical views, maps, tables, plates of different animals and fishes, shells, geological illustrations and other scientific material. No less important are the many plates illustrating folklore, including the Sami people. There are portraits and interior scenes as well as pictures of the camps and their homes. The comprehensive text volumes describe and explain many of the plates and examine several complicated scientific issues. The topographical prints were mostly based on drawings made on the spot by the French artists Auguste Mayer, Charles Giraud, Barthelemy Lauvergne and F. Biard and depicting from south: Hamburg, Denmark, Faeroes, Norway with 98 views from Christiania to the North Cape including 40 from North Norway and Lapland, Spitsbergen (Svalbard) and Bear Island 27 plates, Sweden, Finland, Russia with Moscow, Poland and the Baltic countries. THE COMPLETE SET OF 526 PLATES (450 + 76), THE NATURAL HISTORY PLATES FINELY COLOURED BY HAND. INCLUDING THE ACCOMPANYING TEXT VOLUMES. ALL BINDINGS ARE UNIFORM. THE SET IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INTERNATIONAL 19TH CENTURY PRINTED WORK DESCRIBING AND ILLUSTRATING NORWAY, THE NORTH AND THE SAMI PEOPLE. Regarding the possible publication of some special or luxury copies, see E.H. Schiøtz I, page 159 referring to two subscription publications in the Norwegian National Library, Oslo. It says here: “Il a été tiré un petit nombres exemplaires, sur papier jésus vélin satiné pour le texte , et sur papier de Chine colombier vélin pour les figures…double figures , noires et coloriées; toute les figures noires sur papier de Chine”. Schiøtz I says that the price for a complete regular copy in 1842 was Frs. 1113,50 (equivalent at that time to NOK 800 = 200 Speciedaler), twice more for a luxury copy. This was a fortune in the 1840s. Condition: “As usual” marginal browning and spotting affecting some plates in atlas volumes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Some more than others. Some plates oxidized verso but not touching the image. But in general very fine. When printed on China paper the plates are not affected by the usual browning always found on certain plates in the regular edition printed on normal paper. The technique used is “Chine appliqué”. The China paper with the printed image was pasted wet using high pressure, onto thick, large paper sheets making the volumes much taller than usual. A complete “Gaimard” with all the plate volumes and the accompanying text books is seldom found. It has been estimated that the total print run could be as few as c. 150 copies. Several copies are in institutions or in public libraries and many have been broken. It is certainly a rare work. For further description of the expedition, the bibliography and the biography of the participants, we recommend two books published in 2002 by Knutsen and Posti, Schiøtz I and II, and “Voyage pittoresque Reiseskildringer fra nord”, see below.

Title-page, text, music pages and 38 cromolithographs (31 of 33 of a complete set), but our copy has 7 additional plates from the duplicates of part 8 and 9. CHRISTIANIA – BERLIN – PARIS 1850 – 52 A RARE AND COMPREHENSIVE SET IN THE THICK DELUXE MARBLED WRAPPERS OF THE PUBLISHER. The first edition of «Norske Nationaldragter» was an important contribution in the process of creating a Norwegian identity early 1800. Previously works describing the national costumes were mostly local low cost publications printed in a limited number of copies. Christian Tønsberg was «a modern publisher» and introduced the chromo-lithograph technique in Norway. His cooperation with several printing and publishing houses in Copenhagen and Berlin contributed to rise his production to a high standard. The drawings, which the printed plates are based on, were executed by the artist Johan Fredrik Eckersberg but he was not the original source. His drawings were often based on Johannes Flintoe and the sketches from his travels in Norway 1819 – 1825. The plates are in general clean and in bright colours (a few spots affecting a few plates only). A few text leaves with light browning.

In the interior of the island there are depicted volcanoes in eruption, mountain chains, rivers and different animals including polar beers.

WAGHENAER, HOLLAND 1605 FROM THE LIBR ARY’S INVENTORY. THE BOOK HAS AN IMPORTANT 17TH CENTURY PROVENANCE RECENTLY GALLERI BYGDØY ALLÉ HAS DISCOVERED IN NORWAY THE CHART OF EUROPE, ONE CHART OF 47 IN THE LOST ATLAS. APPARENTLY THE BOOK DISAPPEARED FROM THE LIBR ARY IN LUND BETWEEN 1964 AND 1977

37. LUCAS JANZOON WAGHENAER

«A Generall Carde, & description of the Sea Coastes of Europa, and navigation in this book conteyned. General Pascaerte» Engraving, 54,6x38,5cm. Dutch text verso AMSTERDAM 1605 EXTREMELY RARE CHART OF EUROPE, ACCORDING TO KOEMAN FROM AN ATLAS KNOWN IN TWO COPIES ONLY (H.C. TAYLOR, NEW YORK (NOW KEPT IN YALE UNIVERSITY LIBARY) AND UNIVERSITY LIBRARY, LUND IN SWEDEN. THE PRESENT STATUS OF THE LATTER IS «LOST». The Europe chart from c. 1605 seems to combine cartographical information and several decorative elements from Waghenaer’s two previous regular atlas charts dated 1583 and 1592. One example is the shape of Iceland. It is strongly based on the English edition «The Mariners Mirrour» which was made as a tool against the Spanish Armada 1588, but has a different text. The 1605 version however, has Dutch text verso. Literature: «Old» Koeman Volume IV, Wag 14 «Only two copies known» Condition: The chart has been remargined some decades ago. A few spots and browning. Small splits in the centrefold. As a specialist map and rare book dealer since the 1980s we would under normal circumstances be proud to present such a rarity of marine cartography. However the focus now is to try to contribute to rediscovering the book or the other 46 charts in Waghenar’s atlas which was lost from the Library of Lund in Sweden. The optimal result would be to discover the whereabouts of the entire book. According to own research and long experience in the trade very few single charts from the rare 1605 Waghenaer edition have been offered on the market for at least the last 40 years. This supports the hope that somewhere the book is located with all or most of the other 46 charts still preserved in the volume. How did this single Europe chart come to light and why are we pretty sure it has its origins from the atlas in Lund which we now know to be lost? In the spring of 2018 Galleri Bygdøy Allé was contacted by a Norwegian who had inherited a few maps which he wanted to sell on behalf of himself and his family. Before coming to see me he had been in contact with an internet auction house which had suggested a low estimate and wanted to include it in a forthcoming sale. Apparently they had no idea what it was. All maps he showed me except one were ordinary pieces of less importance and value. But one chart of Europe in the manner of Waghenaer struck me immediately. It looked like a combination of Waghenar’s Europe chart no. 1 from 1583 and his second and changed version from 1592. Was it heavily restored or a mixed copy? Closer examination showed the chart was remargined. Otherwise it looked to be in decent original condition but with some creases, spots, a visible centrefold and browning. Upon carefully reading in Koeman «Atlantes Neerlandici» (volume IV) learned there is indeed a very rare Dutch edition with the date Amsterdam 1605 of the English Waghenaer «The Mariners Mirrour» from 1588. According to Koeman Wag no. 14 there are only two copies known. This was very interesting but a search on the web failed to find any images of 1605. Only a chart of the Baltic was available. It was now time to check with the University Library of Lund if they had any images of the atlas. But disappointingly the web search gave me the sad message that the book is «Lost». The next step was to contact British Library to see if they had any useful information or could support me with any photographs. This was directly on target as BL in the archive has a microfilm set dating from 1964 of the 47 charts in the Lund atlas. Image copies of the charts of Norway as well as the chart of Europe were ordered. Still not a very good or clear photo but the image definitely confirmed that my Europe chart came from the rare 1605 edition. So far so good. Until a few days later when I started my usual registration process as I always do with my new material. This is necessary work for forthcoming catalogues and marketing. I observed some spots which resembled what I had seen on the photo from the British Library. A closer examination using a magnifying glass confirmed my growing suspicion. My «Oslo copy» is definitely the same copy as the one in the microfilm set from BL and consequently my copy must come from the lost Lund atlas.

The next step was obvious, to contact directly the University Library in Lund. I was directed to Per Stobaeus in the rare book division, and he was as expected very surprised indeed by what I could tell him. A close contact with Per Stobaeus and other people in the staff of the University Library of Lund was established and the status of the book as lost was confirmed. According to the Library it seems to have been lost between 1964 and 1977. There is documentation in the British Library confirming that the book was returned to Lund and Sweden by post after it was microfilmed in London in 1964. For all lovers of rare books and maps it is of great importance that the rare Waghenaer atlas «The Mariners Mirrour» Amsterdam 1605 should be found and subsequently returned to the University Library of Lund in Sweden. Even parts or single charts from the book are essential material to discover. The atlas is not only a highly regarded piece and work of art of the inventory of University Library of Lund but is an important contribution to the history of world marine cartography as well. Provenance: Adding to the fact that we are talking about a very rare and important sea chart book, the atlas also has a remarkable Swedish owner history: The Library of Emund Gripenhielm. His extensive and important collection was in 1684 donated to the recently founded University Library of Lund by King Karl XI. Gripenhielm’s Library was created mainly based on his many travels in Europe but also through his position as inspector of the Royal Library of Sweden with rights to keep duplicates in his private collection. Through this catalogue and on the internet I am asking my map friends, collectors, clients, colleagues, librarians and researchers all over the world to come forward if they have any information which could lead to discovering the whereabouts of the book or parts of the book. Thank you very much for your kind cooperation.

The map of Norway is a small size map from a simple book “Caert Thresor“, and we can easily imagine that most loose copies must be lost. The country is shown as far north as Steigen. Our example has Latin text on the back and above the map, this is the edition published by Claesz in Amsterdam. According to Ginsberg there are five printings of the map only: A French text edition 1602, a Latin (our example), in this case the letterpress title page in the atlas is dated 1602 and the titlepage 1603, further a 1609 French issue, one without any text above the map or on the back, (only one copy of this variant is known which is inserted in a German 1612 atlas edition), and the last 1649 Latin edition. The first four issues are classified as “State 1” and the 1649 “State 2”. “Norwegia” is accompanied by the map of Scandinavia from the same issue. Both maps are in fine condition. Literature: W. B.

A DECOR ATIVE MASTERPIECE OF THE NORTHERN NAVIGATION

46. (FREDERICK DE WIT) – LOUIS RENARD

“Totius Europæ Littora Novissimé edita.» Contemporary hand-coloured engraving, 72x89cm AMSTERDAM 1715 EXCELLENT EXAMPLE IN ORIGINAL COLOURS OF THE RARE SEA CHART WITH THE WESTERN EXTENSION. In this extended state, the chart is printed in a few copies in 1715 only. The eastern part is the old Frederick de Wit plate c. 1675. Louis Renard acquired de Wit’s stock of sea chart copper plates with the intention to publish the charts in his own name. The atlas was published in 1715, but the majority of the atlas came with the chart of Europe in the similar form as de Wit except Renard removed the coats of arms. However a few copies of the Europe chart got an extra western extension to include Greenland and vignettes of hunters and dogs bringing a large beast to the bay. Why was this extension made to some examples? We do not know but it could be to make the chart more similar to the so-called “Wall maps”. They were in great fashion among noble families and wealthy business people as decorative elements in their homes or offices. A few marginal small tears restored. A few tiny cracks. Laid down on fine tissue paper for conservation. In very good condition. Literature: W. B. Ginsberg “Sea Charts of Norway 1585 – 1812” Entry 7A. 3b 100 000,- (€10420)

“Situations Tegning over Vardøe Amt bæstaaende af Øst og Vest Finmar…” Pen on a two sheets paper joined, 44x104cm Probably drawn in NORWAY c. 1750 - 1800 EXTREMELY RARE AND IMPORTANT 18th CENTURY MANUSCRIPT MAP OF FINNMARK. So far we do not know who the map maker of this detailed map of “Vardøe Amt” is or if there is a printed map based on the manuscript. But we must assume it was made for a special mission and most likely drawn by a professional Norwegian hand. The entire coastline extending from Vest-Finnmark to Russia has a serious density of local names. 18th Century manuscript map material depicting Finnmark or even other parts of Norway is rarely offered on the market. Some tears and damages within the map, also affecting the title, these are partly restored, the original paper laid down. Spots and browning all over, but for a piece like this in good condition. 50 000,- (€5210)

Schiøtz “Utlendingers reiser i Norge” bind II side 455 nevner at den var en gave til Kronprins Frederik i 1801. Om dette stemmer kommer det etter Theophilius Laan fra ca. 1749, men antagelig før John W. Edy ca. 1804 og hans store separatutgitte akvatint som var en gave til Bernt Anker (se katalognummer 60).

Edy - Christiania En Norwege Prise Sur La Place Par J. W. Edy” Contemporary hand-coloured aquatint, 54,5x74,5cm including text panel LONDON probably c. 1804 *Dette store Christianiaprospektet, antagelig nummer tre av de trykte, (se forklaring under neste nummer) er sett fra nordlige del av Ekebergåsen. Prospektet er enkeltbladtrykk utgitt av J. Edy kort tid etter hjemkomsten til England etter Norgesreise sammen med W. Fearnside. Prospektet var ment som en personlig gave til Bernt Anker som takk for hans gjestfrihet under deres besøk i Norge, ikke minst i den tiden de satt i husarrest hos Anker i Christiania. Under selve motivet vises Bernt Ankers våpenskjold. W. Fearnside utførte tilsvarende gaveprospekt over Skien.

Fearnside» Aquatint, 49,5x74cm + the text panel. Old frame gilt LONDON probably c. 1804 *DET FØRSTE TRYKTE PROSPEKTET OVER SKIEN. AV STØRSTE SJELDENHET. Som vi hørte ovenfor var dette William Fearnsides bidrag for å takke Bernt Anker for gjestfriheten under forvaringen i Christiania sommeren 1800. I tillegg ble det tydeligvis trykket noen flere eksemplarer for salg, og vi finner de to prospektene Christiania og Skien annonsert i «Norske Intelligenssedler», 8.2.1804. Man har tidligere valgt å datere trykkene til nærmere 1800, så dette er et interessant innspill. I «Intelligenssedler» er det anført: «Prospect over Christiania, 5 Rdlr. 48sk; Ditto over Scheen, 4 Rdlr. 48sk». Dette var en betydelig sum på denne tiden. Prospektet av Skien er sjeldent og det synes å eksistere færre eksemplarer av dette enn Edys trykk av Christiania. I offentlige samlinger skal «Skeen» være i Norsk Folkemuseum, Aust-Agder-Museet, Eidsvollsbygningen, Telemark Museum og Nasjonalbiblioteket.

A LARGE SIZE VERSION OF AN IMPORTANT VIEW OF TRONDHEIM

63. M ATHIAS FERSLEV DALAGER (Grønland 1769 – Trondheim 1843)

«Prospect Af Staden Tronhiem i Norge» (Utsikt fra Steinberget med Kristiansten Festning i øst) Gouache, 44,8x67cm, including text panel 50,5x68,5cm Signed and dated lower right: «Tegnet af. Dalager 1816» Painted in TRONDHEIM 1816 *ET SJELDENT VAKKERT OG DETALJRIKT UTSYNSBILDE UTFØRT AV TRONDHEIMSMALEREN DALAGER. PROSPEKTET ER USEDVANLIG GODT BEVART. Dette er et virkelig klassisk Trondheimsprospekt utført i flere eksemplarer med noe avvik. Et tilsvarende bilde datert 1813 og med tilegnelse til Hans Knudtzon, skal ha vært i familien Dues eie i Trondheim. Dette er avbildet i Schnitlers bok «Vore Oldeforeldres Land» som nr. 77, og har nummer 175 hos Koren og Thiis. Vårt bilde fra 1816, som tidligere ikke har vært på markedet, er større enn de fleste andre kjente eksemplarer. Ellers er vi nødt til å legge merke til hvor sirlig nøyaktig prospektet er malt. Forgrunnen med den nydelige utførte figurstaffasjen fra ekserserplassen på Ilevollen er malt i beste «Empireånd». Det militære nærværet i byen rundt 1814 var nøkkelen til forsvaret av det nordenfjeldske. Dalager var født på Grønland og kom til Norge og Trondheim i 1796 i håp om å slå igjennom som billedkunstner og håndverker. Han etterfulgte Elias Meyer som tegnelærer ved realskolen og ved Vaisenhuset skole, men en skilsmisseskandale i 1805 gjorde at han ble avskjediget. Han livnærte seg ved forskjellige gjøremål som privatundervisning og dørsalg av lodd hvor bildene hans var gevinstene. Likevel skal økonomien hans ha vært temmelig skral. Dalager har i tillegg til Trondheim malt flere norske byer, men bilder fra hans hånd er ikkr ofte fremme for salg. Hans sønn, Mathias A. Dalager fulgte i farens fotspor og han utførte også byprospekter. De skiller seg imidlertid ut ved ofte å være av ringere kunstnerisk kvalitet.

Hans Peter Dahm blir i dag plassert i den etablerte kretsen av våre viktigste prospektkunstnere fra de første tiårene av 1800-tallet. Han var inntil 1813 i marinen, men etter 1814 da han giftet seg på Strømsø med Helene Sophie Mathisen ble yrket hans undervisningslærer i ulike emner. Han utførte en rekke prospekter og skipsportretter i gouache fra Drammen og omegn. De er alle viktige historiske og kulturelle dokumenter.

[“Torvslaget 17. mai 1829”] Contemporary hand-coloured lithograph, 20.5x35,5cm CHRISTIANIA c. 1829 THE ORIGINAL “TORVSLAGBILDET”. AN IMPORTANT AND EARLY LITHOGRAPH FROM CHRISTIANIA. There is until today an uncertainty about who printed this view and also who did the drawing. Most old catalogues claim that Wergeland made the drawing, very much because of his similar illustration in his own book “Phantasmer” from 1829. J.B. Halvorsen however claims that the writer Reimers made a drawing of “Torvslaget”. However the print is rare. This copy has belonged to a family in Oslo who owned it for generations before it was sold through Kunstantikvariat PAMA in 2007. Some browning. Literature: J. B.

A POLAR AND SPITSBERGEN ICON FROM 1926 – THE ORIGINAL PHOTOGR APH SIGNED

79. (LINCOLN ELLSWORTH & ROALD AMUNDSEN DEPARTING FROM SPITSBERGEN 1926)

«Disappearing into the Gloom of the Northern Sun»

AMUNDSEN, ROALD. (1872-1928). Norwegian explorer and the first to reach the South Pole. SP. (“Roald Amundsen”). 1p. Oblong Small 4to. 16,3x21,5cm. N.p., N.d., (May 11, 1926). A black-and-white photograph of Umberto Nobile’s dirigible «Norge» departing from Spitsbergen on its historic flight over the North Pole in 1926. Amundsen has signed in green ink over the sky as has American polar explorer and sportsman LINCOLN ELLSWORTH (1880-1951), who has added, “Off for Alaska! 11 May 1926 Lincoln Ellsworth.” In 1925, Amundsen and Ellsworth “attempted to reach the North Pole in two flying-boats. They got to within almost 100 miles of the Pole before landing in a lead, where one of the planes was wrecked. It was nearly four weeks later that the second seaplane, with everyone on board, managed to get into the air and back to the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, and then it was forced down short of the land and had to chase an unobservant sealing ship along the sea to get a tow back to safety,” (A History of Polar Exploration, Mountfield). Tragically, Ellsworth’s father, James, a wealthy coal mine operator and financial sponsor of the expedition, died in his villa outside of Florence, Italy, while awaiting word from his lost son. Undeterred, Amundsen, Ellsworth, and Italian engineer and explorer Umberto Nobile along with 13 others successfully flew over the North Pole aboard the dirigible «Norge», designed by Nobile. They departed the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen on May 11, 1926 (the date noted by Ellsworth), landing in Alaska two days later. American naval officer Richard Evelyn Bird, Jr. purportedly beat the Norge to become the first aviator to fly over the Pole, departing Spitsbergen on May 9 for a flight that lasted fifteen hours and fifty-seven minutes. However, doubts were later raised about the accuracy of Byrd’s flight log, making the Norge’s flight the first verified flight over the North Pole as well as the first flight over the polar ice cap from Europe to North America. Amundsen continued his polar explorations until 1928, when he disappeared during an attempted rescue of Nobile and his crew who had crashed in the Arctic aboard the airship Italia. Ellsworth received the U. S. Congressional Gold Medal for the flight of the Norge as well as an unprecedented second medal for a later aerial survey of Antarctica, one of four Antarctic expeditions he mounted between 1933 and 1939. Ellsworth was also a major benefactor of the American Museum of Natural History. Provenance: North American Private Collection, acquired before 1985.

63


A FINE, COMPLETE ATLAS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION BY ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS GERMAN MAP PUBLISHING BUSINESSES IN THE 18th CENRURY. The content of the atlas is typical 18th Century to show the reader a broad impression of the World but keeping the main focus on European conditions. Matthäus Seutter was born in Augsburg with studies in Nuremberg and working practice in Augsburg before he established his own publishing business and print shop there in 1710. The business idea was to copy and improve other publishers’ works based on own models. The copyright system was not very good in those days! Through the next decades several hundred maps and prints were produced, many of which are the most impressive and beautiful examples of prints made in Europe during the 18th century. The publishing took place both in Augsburg and in Vienne. The colouring on the maps is often spectacularly executed in a “pastel wash-colour-style”. After Matthäus’ death in 1757 the business continued for five more years by his son Albrecht Karl and his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter. 135 000,- (€14050)

The face of the girl has been cut out and replaced by a photograph. It makes sense that this has been done by the artist himself. Th.

JOHN ANDREAS SAVIO

EN BETYDELIG PRIVATSAMLING MED ARBEIDER AV DEN SAMISKE KUNSTNER

JOHN ANDREAS SAVIO (BUGØYFJORD I SØR-VARANGER 1902 – OSLO 1938)

Det var med stor glede, men også stor ydmykhet Galleri Bygdøy Allé tok på seg oppgaven med å presentere en større samling med samisk relatert kunst og objekter. Hovedkjernen i samlingen er de fem nedenstående nummere med tegninger og tresnitt av John Andreas Savio, til sammen 48 enheter. Dette er en stor og betydelig samling med verk av Savio som både er en etterspurt kunstner og hvor tilbudet tross alt er relativt begrenset spesielt når trykkene er av så fin kvalitet som her. Ydmykheten i presentasjonen har flere grunner. Å katalogisere og presentere Savios kunst har vært en stor glede da det har gitt undertegnede en enda dypere innsikt i arbeidene til en sann og følsom kunstnersjel. Jeg har ved flere anledninger besøkt Finnmark og er også gjennom gammel familiearv tilbake til ca. 1900 deleier i en tomt i Hamningberg i Øst-Finnmark. Gjennom Savios kunst kommer trangen etter nye reiser til det høye nord. En annen side som i høy grad bidrar til respekt for arbeidet med å presentere John Savios kunst er de åpenbare fortsatt mange myter og usikkerhet rundt hans levnetsløp og dermed også hans kunstnerskap. At han skal fremstilles som «den første samiske kunstner» er vel de aller fleste enige om, og Anne Marie Lorck drøfter nettopp dette utsagnet i sin artikkel i Oslo Kunstforening 2002. Hennes tillegg «…på heltid» kan muligens synes gi mening. En av usikkerhetene rundt kunstneren Savio er hvor tett han var knyttet til Statens Håndverks- og Kunstindustriskole (SHKS) på 1920-tallet. Men dette er uansett sekundært fordi Savios egen kunst taler mer enn nok for seg selv. Alle trykkene er i usedvanlig god teknisk tilstand og profesjonelt innrammet. Vi referer til den oppgitte litteratur for videre biografiske og kunstneriske opplysninger.

95. ÉN SAMLING PÅ 47 TRESNITT AV JOHN SAVIO

Samlingen består av 44 ulike tresnitt inkludert fire håndkolorerte, med tillegg av tre varianter – dubletter. Vi har valgt å katalogisere tresnittene etter rekkefølgen hos Berntsen – Parmann (1980) hovedsakelig på grunn av at de aller fleste motivene er avbildet i denne boken. Denne nummereringen er merket BP. Men en grundigere og delvis mer korrekt beskrivelse og fremstilling av Savios liv og virke og hans kunst er nok utstillingskatalogen fra Oslo Kunstforening 2002. Niels Christian Bang var helt sentral i dette prosjektet ikke minst som eier av den omfattende samlingen som den gangen ble utstilt. Denne samlingen er for øvrig nå permanent plassert i Saviomuseet i Kirkenes. Bangs nummerering er hovedsakelig bygget på antatt kronologi av trykkenes fremstilling og er i vår katalog merket NCB. Vi har i all hovedsak benyttet trykkenes titler slik de er gjengitt hos Bang. Alle trykkene er signert av John Savio og nummerert med blyant om ikke annet er angitt. Proveniens: En stor privatsamling i Oslo Prisen på samlingen med 47 tresnitt fås på forespørsel

NORSK KULTURSENTER AS

N

orsk Kultursenter AS ble stiftet vinteren 2017 og er tett knyttet opp til Stor-Elvdal Hotell på Koppang midt i Østerdalen. Hotellanlegget ligger midt i sentrum av Koppang på 10 mål tomt og med 11 bygninger. Ni av bygningene er laftede hus fra 1600 – ca. 1850 og juvelen i kronen er «Barfrøstua» som er en av de første bygningene som ble fredet i Norge i 1923. Stor-Elvdal Hotell har rundt på anlegget en større kunstsamling og åpnet sommeren 2016 eget museum og museumsbibliotek. Hovedtyngden av kunstsamlingen skal dokumentere nasjonsbyggingen de første tiårene etter 1814, men spennet er ikke mindre enn at samlingene også inneholder hovedverk av både Arnold Haukeland og Bjarne Melgaard. Melgaards store maleri pryder veggen på «Nye Ladden Bar og Spiseri». Norsk Kultursenter og Stor-Elvdal Hotell fikk av Vegvesenet våren 2017 brune skilt med severdighetssymbolet plassert ved både riksvei og fylkesvei. Norsk Kultursenter skal bli en aktiv aktør innenfor norsk kunst og kulturformidling og vil satse på ulike arrangementer og begivenheterSTOR-ELVDAL innenfor deHOTELL fleste områder.

STOR-ELVDAL HOTELL HAR EGET FJORD, FJELL OG REISEMUSEUM «FRA VUGGEN I SOGN TIL ØSTERDALENS RIKE» I bygningene Østerdalsstua «Hektoen» og i «Jegersborg» er det kunstmuseum og museumsbibliotek som trekker til seg nasjonal oppmerksomhet. Sentralnerven www.norsk-kultursenter.no i prosjektet er kultur og identitetsoppbyggingen av Norge fra 1814 og frem til rundt 1860. I tillegg er det på «Tunet» mange andre viktige kunst- og kulturinnslag både fra tiden langt før og etter den tid.

Våre gjester 86 vil få et godt innblikk i vår kunsthistorie med førstehåndskjennskap til reise- og kunstpioneerene som tok seg rundt i landet under ofte strabasiøse forhold og tegnet, malte og beskrev alt hva de så og følte.
