The Nerdrum School

Since the 80’s mr. Nerdrum has been running the Nedrum school with varying students in France, Iceland and for the moment; in Norway.


In 2013, The Nerdrum School was published by Orpheus publishing.
The book shows the school, a variable of older and more recent students’ work, aswell as new paintings by Nerdrum.


Studying with Odd Nerdrum is better described as a cost-free workshop or a Renaissance school. Students engage in modelling and preparing canvases, and philosophy is often the daily conversation in the studio.
