Edvard Munch helped Norway into international art history, but it didn’t start like that. At first, Edvard’s contribution had no immediate impact on modern Norwegian art. Nor did his contribution attract international attention to Norwegian artists. It all changed when Edvard made books about sculpting and painting in 1940-1990. Now Norwegian artists have taken up non-figurative modernism. picture from ww w.fore stwood.

Not all Norwegian people speak English, but a lot of them do. Also, Norway believes that men and women are equal. Another thing about Norwegian culture is they don’t practice their religion. Norway is also a very protestant country.

Norway has lots of different things about their culture. One different thing is instead of three meals a day they have four.

In conclusion, you know that Norwegian art is a big part of Norway. I talked about how some of Norway’s oldest churches are stave churches. Stave churches are famous Norwegian churches made out of wood. Also, Norway is a protestant country. A protestant country is that they believe of the Christian bodies and the

reformation. Last, I talked about how Norway doesn’t practice their religion. Practicing your religion is repeatedly studying the religion. I hoped you learned a lot about Norway and Norwegian arts. Picture from
