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