Thorvald Hellesen. Pioneering Cubism

On this tour you will hear three audio stories about Thorvald Hellesen, pioneering cubism, and machine cubism.

After being celebrated as ‘a new Munch’ in Kristiania (Oslo), the 23-year-old Hellesen went to Paris where he lived for the rest of his life.

He defined himself as a Cubist and joined a movement that upturned almost all established ideas about what art should be.
