An artist’s childhood home

The Kittelsen house: He was born on the second floor, and as a child he felt as if the distance between the kitchen stove and the living room window was infinite.
Welcome to the small house in the center of Kragerø, where the renowned fairytale illustrator Theodor Kittelsen was born in 1857.

Exhibition 2020:

This year we present Theodor Kittelsens series Winter Fairytale. You will also see some porcelain from Porsgrunds Porselænsfabrik decorated by our artist, Kittelsen.

On the 1st floor of the house we present the romantic series “The Months Of The Year” from 1889. The series was created on Skåtøy by a newlywed artist who was still under the spell of love.
