A remarkable artistic legacy
Vigeland Park is an extraordinary, open-air homage to the art of one remarkable man. The Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland lived from 1869 to 1943 and over that time he developed a distinctive style of sculpture, representing nature and humanity in his striking creations.
Many of the artist’s finest works can be found at Vigeland Park, including an impressive 14 metre tall carved granite column which dominates the park. The artist behind the works also designed the layout of Vigeland Park, creating a beautifully laid out area packed with engaging artworks.
