THE 1920'S AND 30'S

Right now a small art exhibition is on display in the entrance hall; "Women in the 1920s and 30s" with eight female portraits painted by Hans Norsbo.

Hans Johanson Norsbo (1897-1955) is best known as one of the Falu graphic artists, but also painted many portraits. Around the 1930s, he was influenced by "the new realism", which was a reaction against expressionism in art.

Painted furniture from the museum's magazine

We show off our painted folk furniture in a way you have never seen before. Dalarna's museum is carrying out a major move to new magazines and this ongoing long-term process means that we will have new opportunities to display our collections. Come in "in the middle of the move" and see cabinets and furniture, from four hundred years and the whole landscape, on their way to new magazines.

-seventeenth-century garments hidden behind valley paintings. 

In 2016, Dalarna's museum was able to call in a valley - painted interior from Ingridsgården in the village of Hagen, Dala-Floda through Dalarnas Försäkringsbolags Kulturstiftelse. The valley paintings were made in 1815 and are the only ones preserved after the otherwise unknown toy painter AES (probably Anders Ersson).

These unusual painted wall panels are made by an experienced painter and show a sense of both color and shape. However, there is another side of the coin, or in this case the weave! 

The valley paintings are painted on textile and when we turned them over we could see that the surface they were painted on is possibly even more important than the painting itself: on the back it was clear that the paintings were made on sewn and well-used 1700th century cut garments, a very unusual insight in everyday clothes from older times in the Swedish countryside.

No fewer than nine, possibly ten, shirts have been identified and based on these, one has been reconstructed and sewn up.

For the exhibition, we have also produced a booklet with history, patterns and sewing descriptions for the reconstructed shirt. Available for purchase in the museum shop.

Hans Wikström, the valley painters and a biblical motif

Note! Last chance, closes 23/10.

An exciting new acquisition for the Dalarna Museum's collections is the mural Hans Wikström's mural, which depicts Jesus' parable of the ten virgins, a popular motif in Swedish folk art. Come to an in-depth knowledge of how this motif has lived in valley painting, songs and folk culture and see a motif in several different valley-painted interpretations.
