Home of the famous artist Chr. Skredsvig
Chr. Skredsvigs hjem Hagan
Hagan was the home of the painter and author Christian Skredsvig (1854-1924) and is the best kept Norwegian artist home of the golden age of Norwegian painting. Both house and interior have been left untouched since Chr. Skredsvig and his family lived there. His own and his art friends' paintings and drawings still hang on the walls, all together about 150 originals.
Lake Solevann and the mountain Andersnatten.
Hagan lies high up in Eggedal with a fantastic view over the lake Solevann and the mountain Andersnatten.
The place still belongs to the Skredsvig family, but the municipality of Sigdal is responsible for maintenance and management of the artist home.
Hagan is open for guided tours in the summer season and has new theme exhibitions with Skredsvig's original work every year.
In the old storehouse from 1668 you find an exhibition and a shop where art reproductions and other souvenirs are sold.
