Rosemaling is the decorative painting of Norway. Would you like to know more about its various styles and history?

This booklet is designed to provide some basic rosemaling information. We hope it helps you gain a greater appreciation of the folk art’s beauty and variety.

This project is in memory of Marlys Hammer, a Vesterheim Gold Medalist in rosemaling, who dedicated much of her adult life to sharing the art form she loved, as a teacher, promoter, and encourager.
