5500 works of art

PHOTO ART: Is it through its diversity that the world emerges? The game of life takes place behind some masks, which some wear, others take off. The works in the Tangen collection were made by Nordic artists throughout the 1900th century, with a main emphasis from 1930 to 1960. And who is Tangen, besides being an asset manager?

Camille, Hannah, Lisa, Pauline and Flora

WOMEN: Art done by men is simply given more attention: in collections, in exhibition programs, in art literature, in the art market. But what about the large number of female artists over the past 500 years?
