150 YEARS OF VALUABLE MOMENTS!

Our Anniversary auction “Blomqvist 150 years” brought a new Norwegian auction record.  The large painting "Andersnatten" by Theodor Kittelsen sold for 17,5 million NOK. The evocative landscape painting with its hand carved frame is considered to be one of Kittelsen’s best works. “Andersnatten” had not been on the market since 1904 when it was exhibited at Blomqvist and was most likely sold for 1000 NOK which would be equivalent to ca. 80.000 NOK today.

The Anniversary auction also brought many more fantastic hammer prices, including a new International record for the lithograph “The Brooch. Eva Mudocci” by Edvard Munch which sold for 3,375 million NOK. Munch is one of Norway’s most popular artists with a large International audience. The total value of the “Blomqvist 150 years” sale Is the highest that has ever been offered on the Norwegian auction market. Many of the hammer prices were double that of the estimates which is a positive indication of the state of the art market.
