Welcome to the Oluf Høst Museum in Gudhjem.
Oluf Høst Museum opened in 1998 and is decorated in Hedvig and Oluf Høst’s beautiful villa, Norresân, in Gudhjem. This is an artist’s home with a rich collection of Oluf Høst’s paintings hung right there where they were in their time. At the same time, the Oluf Høst Museum is an art museum with changing special exhibitions.
The museum’s beautifully beautiful rock garden slopes steeply towards Gudhjem’s “mountain”, the rock formation Bokul. Part of the garden is an old quarry, which in its time provided granite for the construction of the emergency harbor on the other side of Hedvig and Oluf Høst’s house. The garden grows among others fig and mulberry trees.
This year we have got 2 new exhibitions.
Sif Itona Westerberg & Asbjørn Skou: Marow and Stone: The two contemporary artists Sif Itona Westerberg and Asbjørn Skou have united their practises for the exhibition at the Oluf Høst Museum. Here they change the summer workshop into a total installation containing a large sculptural work and a picture frieze painted directly on the wall.
OBSESSED BY BOGNEMARK – The Oluf Høst Life Motive: The Oluf Høst Museum renews its view of the motive which followed Høst for more than 30 years, being the farm Bognemark. The exhibition shows a solid selection of the best and most touching Bognemark-paintings borrowed from museums and private collectors around the country. This exhibition shows the development from the early versions from the 1930’s to the more abstract versions of the farm from the 1950’s.
