KK07 – The Kings of the Liberation
«The Kings of the Liberation»
A unique and historical series of postcards. In connection with the 70th anniversary of the liberation from Nazi Germany’s occupation artist Ross Kolby was commissioned to portray Norway’s three generations of monarchs attached to World War II.
Kolby named the portraits «The Kings of the Liberation» and painted intimate, psychological studies that for the first time portray the three majesties side by side, in their reign and at the same age.
The paintings are permanently displayed at Norway’s Resistance Museum at Akershus Fortress in Oslo.
Here you can see the 10 minute long dokumentary “The Kings of the Liberation” to see the historic context of the paintings.
