Jeg sitter i det eneste hyggelige huset jeg har boet i – i Åsgårdstrand

Munch on Veierland and Tjøme

In 1887, the Munch family spends time on Veierland, where they rent a place from the Paulsen family. Here Munch paints “Veierland near Tønsberg”.
Munch takes a sailing trip in 1888, arriving in Tønsberg, where he visits the painter Karl Dørnberger. Later in the summer, the Munch family rents the Dørnberger’s summer house at Vrengensundet, between Tjøme and Nøtterøy. Artworks created during this stay include “Laura and Inger in the Summer Sun”, “At the General Store in Vrengen” and “Evening”. Munch visits Åsgårdstrand in the fall.
