Anders Beer Wilse, photographer (1865 -
The theater photographs in the Galleri NOR were made by Anders B. Wilse,
who is regarded among Norway's most important photographers. The majority
of his picture archive, 110 000 negatives and 40 000 original positives,
now resides at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History. In addition,
there are smaller archives at the Oslo City Museum, The Norwegian Maritime
Museum and the National Library of Norway. The Rana Division of the National
Library has worked with the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History to preserve
and make accessible the Wilse Archives at the Museum, and it is these
photographs that can now be seen in the Gallery NOR.
