Edvard Munch at Hotel Continental
One of Norway’s largest private Munch collections can be seen in our lobby bar BAR BOMAN. Arne Boman Hansen, the second-generation owner, chanced on 12 prints by the Norwegian Expressionist at an Oslo art dealer in 1932.
Since he offered to buy them all, Boman Hansen was given a special price of only NOK 5 500. These authentic works now represent the cornerstone of our investment in art and culture. Edvard Munch lived from 1863 to 1944 and was a renowned painter and graphic artist both in Norway and internationally. He helped to pioneer the Expressionist school.

- Towards the forest I, 1897, woodcut
- Melancholy III, 1896, woodcut
- Vampire II, 1895–1902, lithograph and combination print
