The exhibition “Into the Art

An exhibition about the Romantic Nationalism period and its paintings

See opening hours and book your tickets for the exhibition here.


In the old office building of Sorenskriveren (The Magistrate) you can join a journey into the art of Hans Gude and his artist friends in Norway and Europe. It is also a journey of discovery in the Nesbyen environment as Hans Gude met it. In the “red room” you can explore local, national and European art history through interactive picture frames. In the main room (“the green room”) is a miniature copy of the Sorenskrivergården (The Magistrates house).

If you look in through the windows you get a glimpse of life in the magnificent courtyard. Along the walls you can read about Gude and his life, and you can meet his family and friends through portrait galleries. In the “blue room” can fly over the landscape where Hans Gude and his friends painted. In the Brewery House you will find the exhibition “Faces in Nes” with portraits of locals that the artists met on their visits.

Larger groups (11 or more persons) can contact for a request for a tour of the exhibition outside the opening hours.
