The Astrup Research Centre is a collaboration between the DNB Savings Bank Foundation and Kode in Bergen, Norway. The centre was founded in 2016 and aims to study Nikolai Astrup’s art and legacy, and to make his life story and artworks available to a wider audience.

The catalogue raisonné is an expansive overview of Nikolai Astrup’s artworks. It is built on the Astrup Research Centre’s ongoing work with mapping and registering artworks, historical photographs, literature, exhibition history and archive material. The catalogue will make Astrup’s paintings, woodcuts, woodblocks, drawings, photographs, and textiles accessible online, and facilitate research by providing detailed information on these works.

A sizeable collection of artworks by Nikolai Astrup are permanently displayed at Kode. Part of Kode’s collection originates from the Rasmus Meyer collection, who acquired and commissioned several of Astrup’s masterpieces during the artist’s lifetime. The DNB Savings Bank Foundation’s extensive collection of artworks by Astrup, containing 58 paintings, 101 prints, and a large collection of works on paper, can also be viewed here.
