Norwegian artist Odd Nerdrum (born 1944) was a student at the Academy of Art in Oslo when Modernism first made its delayed entry to Norway. He broke away from his peers who rallied around Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, and became a follower of Rembrandt and a painter in the classical tradition. Art students from all over the world have since sought out his teachings, and many have become internationally known in their own rights. This book documents the influence of Odd Nerdrum, and his followers who went on to become some of the leading artists of today’s figurative painting.
