Rasmus Meyer Collection

A delightful wander through Norwegian highlights, and one of the finest collections of art by Edvard Munch.

As one of the first collectors of Edvard Munch’s art, Rasmus Meyer purchased chief works from all periods of Munch’s oeuvre. In what is today one of the world’s most important collections of Munch’s art, you can find masterpieces such as ‘Jealousy’, ‘Melancholy’, ‘The Woman in Three Stages’ and ‘Evening on Karl Johan’.

In 1917 Rasmus Meyer’s children donated their father’s collection of art and historical furniture to the city of Bergen. Today, as part of KODE, the donation comprises one of the finest collections of art from the Norwegian ‘golden age’ (1880–1905). The beautiful museum building enables you to have a delightful wander through historical interiors from Bergen, plus to experience highlights from the careers of artists such as J.C. Dahl, Hans Gude, Christian Krohg, Harriet Backer, Erik Werenskiold and Gerhard Munthe.

Please note: Visiting the Munch-exhibition?

Dear visitors. This winter we presented two Edvard Munch exhibitions at KODE: “Edvard Munch. There are Worlds Within Us” and “The Experimental Self – Edvard Munch’s photography”. For this reason, the Munch-exhibition in KODE 3, will be temporarily closed from 12 of August 2019.

There will be very few works on display by Edvard Munch in the museum, only at KODE 4, in the period 12 August 2019– March 2020. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this might cause. A new presentation will open in KODE 3 by the end of March 2020.
