22 Playwright Henrik Ibsen Statue in Oslo, Norway

Henrik Ibsen was a famous 19th century Norwegian playwright. He has been called the father of modern drama. His plays are only second to William Shakespeare in terms of the most staged productions around the world. This statue by Stephan Sinding has stood outside the National Theater since it was built in 1899. On opening night, the author and his wife Suzannah sat in the front row. The couple’s last home is nearby and known as The Ibsen Museum. In the background is the Theatercaféen. Also called the Annex, this Vienna-styled café is part of the 5-star Hotel Continental built in 1900.
