Reykjavik Art Museum – Kjarvalsstaðir

Kjarvalsstaðir (Flókagata 24) is the first building in Iceland designed specifically to display works of visual art. Its doors opened in 1973 and it is named after the painter Jóhannes S. Kjarval (1885-1972), one of Iceland´s most influential and recognized artists. The most comprehensive collection of Kjarval´s works is on permanent display here, highlighting his range of styles as well his use of the local nature and mythology. A fine example of Nordic modernism, the building features floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of Klambratún Park.

Reykjavík Art Museum is housed in three unique buildings in the city centre and holds some of the most distinguished works in Iceland´s artistic landscape.
