The so-called Black and White exhibitions largely included works on paper, such as watercolours, graphic art, drawings and illustrations. The exhibition in Bergen Art Society this year presented approximately 400 works on paper from the collection of the deceased art collector Rasmus Meyer, and filled the art society’s three rooms. In a beneficiary letter signed in 1916, Meyer’s family donated the collection to the City of Bergen. Before the opening of the museum building in 1924, this exhibition provided a much-anticipated glimpse of the collection, which encompassed lithographs, engravings and drawings by artists such as Edvard Munch, Theodor Kittelsen and Erik Werenskiold. Meyer purchased woodcuts in black and white and colour directly from Astrup from 1911 onward, among other things a version of Small Self-Portrait, which was exhibited in this connection.
