Happy Birthday Gustav Vigiland!! Today, Vigiland was born in Norway in 1869. He took his name (Vigiland) from a small town where he lived for a time with his grandparents. He studied to be a wood carver and later determined to become a sculptor, studied with Bryunjulf Bergslien. In 1921, the home he lived in was demolished by the city, but they built a new one for him, including a studio space and grounds for his sculpture garden. He lived there until his death in 1943.
Still in Hawaii...I'll have to post a picture later!
Hello, I am home! The sculpture I decided to post for Gustav Vigiland is Going Round the Mulberry Bush, located in his sculpture garden in Oslo, Norway.
