Hamsun's own handwriting Marie Hamsun The Hamsun family Art Miscellaneous The newest



A portfolio of portraits by Henrik Lund including a portrait of Knut Hamsun together with Gunnar Heiberg.



Another portfolio, this time containing woodcuts Fr. Gotsch: To Knut Hamsun.


Tore Hamsun's lithograph of his father from 1959, somewhat a rarity only made in 10 copies. Mine is numbered 5/10. Guess if Tore Hamsun was inspired by Edvard Munch, when he made this portrait of his father for the celebration of the centennial of Hamsun's birth.

The lithograph now hangs in the Hamsun-lounge onboard the Hurtigruten coastal steamer M/S Midnatsol.


Tore Hamsun has frequently used his father as a model. Tore once said, that he was a very patient model. My lithograph is numbered 66/100.


This beautiful oil painting of Knut Hamsun is painted by Marianne Hamsun, Knut Hamsun's daughter-in-law. A painting that we are particularly fond of.


This beautiful woodcut by Tore Hamsun we are particularly fond of. It brightens up the room when we enter. It is numbered 35/150.


Serigraphy by Tore Hamsun titled On overgrown Paths. Nr. 48/50.


Here a specimen proof with the same subject whole body.

The picture now hangs in the Hamsun-lounge onboard the Hurtigruten coastal steamer M/S Midnatsol.

Friedrich Karl Gotsch

(With love to Knut Hamsun) What a declaration of admiration for Knut Hamsun! Written by the famous german painter F.K.Gotsch in 1963 in H.Th Flemmings monography on Gotsch, where also his litograph of Hamsun is reproduced. Could it be better phrased?


This funny and lively lithograph of Knut Hamsun, once again Fridrich Karl Gotsch: Siebdruck nr. 17/80 from 1962, is now hanging on our wall. The title is -Hamsun- .
