The Thore Heramb Legacy

My number one painter among Norwegian artists (E. Munch excluded), Thore Heramb, passed away on the 16th of June this year. His memory will always be in my heart and the talk we had connected to his painting from Hastings UK (Blue curtain) will be remembered for ever.

That I have used many of Heramb´s paintings to develop my own painting skill should not surprise anybody. Picasso said that he had no problem of stealing from the best and many of the great painters have copied others during their development.

Today I present two of my paintings quite like some of Heramb´s.

 "The piano player" (acrylic on canvas 50 x 54) from 2008

"The Teacher" (acrylic on canvas 55 x 40 ) from 2008.

I think both paintings are very good and should have a wall in somebodies home.

However, if you really want to know Thore Heramb and his art from the beginning till the mid 80s, I recommend everybody to use 40 minutes to watch NRK´s program from 1985 about Th. Heramb
