In the Ullern district of Oslo, easily accessible by bus, tram and train, is the place that became the permanent residence of the artist Edvard Munch for the last twenty-eight years of his life, until his death in 1944.Today the property is home to the Ekely artists colony. It is also the site of Munch’s Vinteratelieret, the artist’s large Winter Studio, designed by two architects who, in their day, were among the most renowned in Norway. The original building (1919–20) was the work of Arnstein Arneberg. Ten years later (1928–29), it was restructured according to drawings by Henrik Bull.
During the summer season, Ekely becomes a venue for exhibitions and guided tours arranged by the Munch Museum. For further information see WHAT’S ON on the Munch Museum’s website.
To visit the Winter Studio, keep an eye on WHAT’S ON here, or follow us on Facebook.
You are welcome to visit the property, if only to sit for a while on a bench under the fruit trees in Munch’s garden, and to imagine Munch himself standing at his easel painting the scene.
The Ekely property is located in Oslo’s Ullern district to the northwest of Skøyen and just south of Ring 3 (Ullernchausséen), close to Oslo University Hospital, Radiumhospitalet.
