When you hear of the style of painting that comes from Numedal, Norway, what image comes to mind? It is hard for even experts in rosemaling to think of a typical Numedal piece. That is because it had so many influences from Hallingdal and Telemark painters. Did you know that the famous rosemaler Thomas Luraas was one of the Telemark painters to leave his mark in Numedal? There were many “inside” influences too, because there were many creative and unique resident painters in Numedal whose styles were dissimilar.
Come and explore with Patti Goke, Vesterheim Gold Medalist, the different looks of the painted items from Numedal Valley. She has traveled twice to the valley known as the “Valley of the Middle Ages,” both times with Vesterheim on Folk Art Study Tours. She has also done individual study of the style and painters.
