Odd Nerdrum as a printmaker

In his adolescence, Odd Nerdrum saved money to buy "The American Woman", an etching Edvard Munch made while traveling by train to Paris as a young man. However, Nerdrum's mother took his savings and used them to invest in stocks. Shortly thereafter, Nerdrum made his first etchings. Among them motifs that he would later transfer to the canvas — "Self-portrait in Dressing Gown" being one example. As a draughtsman, Munch was a master, and Nerdrum wanted to put claim to the same title with his production of lithographs. One of the first printmakers he worked with, had previously worked for Munch. The printmaker's remarks about Munch confirmed Nerdrum's suspicion of an incorrigible perfectionist.
For Nerdrum, as with Munch, each edition of prints is to be considered as an independent work, often with the goal in mind of improving the starting point (the painting).
In the 2000s, Nerdrum developed a printing method at Kjell Raugland's printing house by drawing on sandblasted glass. This technique has received the technical title "glass print" and has been the marker for Nerdrum's production of lithographs ever since.

    • A Nerdrum Museum in the Making — Invitation to a Press Conference

      Odd Nerdrum, Norway’s most prominent painter from the last century, lacks a permanent exhibition space for his works. His wife, Turid Spildo, and his son, Öde S. Nerdrum, intend to do something about this. Together, they plan to convert an old industrial building on Agnes, north of the city of Stavern, into a gallery with a collection of his finest paintings. An invitation from Sea Park Stavern in 2021 catalysed the idea. “The Sea Park” housing developers were looking for someone who could bring a cultural citadel to the area. For a long time, Turid and Öde have been looking for someone to take the initiative to establish a museum, but they finally decided to take on the job themselves. From Odd Nerdrum’s exhibition “You See We Are Blind” at Fine Art Gallery in Oslo in 2022. Photo: Bork S. Nerdrum – My father’s legacy is unique, not only as a painter but as a teacher as well. I definitely feel a responsibility to preserve and convey what has inspired a generation of painters to return to nature, says Öde. Turid and Öde do not have experience in museum management. However, they believe that the love and respect they have for his paintings is a more decisive factor to their success. – The most important consideration is to be aware of what constitutes a good museum experience. I believe the two of us to be amongst the most seasoned museum-goers.Turid agrees and points to how important the overall atmosphere and environment contributes to the paintings. – A museum must have a café! “Pipehuset” at Agnes outside of Stavern. Photo: Sea Park Stavern Invitation to the press conference Tron Inge Nilsen, who is the managing director of Sea Park Stavern, has been in close dialogue with Turid and Öde in recent months. They recently landed an agreement for the takeover of the old industrial building. Tron is excited that something special is finally happening in the resort town. – We are very proud that Nerdrum has chosen the Sea Park as the location for this museum establishment. This will be an exciting attraction of national importance that will give new life to the remains of the old venerable brick buildings of the Agnes match factory. Key handover with Cecilie Sanden, Turid Spildo og Öde S. Nerdrum. Photo: Sea Park Stavern Turid Spildo and Öde Nerdrum are arranging a press conference that will take place on Thursday 30. March at 1 pm at Pipehuset (Agnes torg 18) to present the project in the premises where it will be built. Everyone is welcome and invited to the press conference.
