Knut Skinnarland (1909-1993)
Knut Skinnarland was one of the best Norwegian sculpturs in his generation. He was born in Rauland. He studied art in Oslo and Copenhagen, and made his debut at the National Exhibition of Visual Arts in 1945.
From 1948 he worked at the restoration of the Nidarosdomen cathedral in Trondheim. Other famous work of art by Knut Skinnarland is the "Fishermen's monument" in Ålesund and in Akureyri at Iceland, as well as the monuments of A.O. Vinje and of Sondre Norheim.
Every season there also is a new art exhibition at the Skinnarland collection, where contemporary art works are for sale.
The collection is open in the summer season.
