22 KODE 3 Museum in Bergen, Norway

Encircling Lake Lungegard are buildings named KODE 1, 2, 3 and 4. They are four of the seven Bergen Art Museum locations. The KODE museums collectively manage over 43,000 works of art. The KODE 3 gallery focuses on Edvard Munch. He was a Norwegian artist made famous by his expressionist paintings. His work was often abstract, stylistic and sometimes haunting. They reflected his rollercoaster psyche until his death in 1944. His most famous work is The Scream. Although it is not shown in Bergen, an extensive number of Munch’s paintings are on display. They were gifted by Rasmus Meyer. He used his fortune made from Norway’s largest mill to amass the Rasmus Meyer Art Collection. A few other artists from Norway’s golden age (1880 – 1905) are also represented in KODE 3.
