But this situation was short-lived. Financial realities in the early 1920s caused many Scandinavian collectors to go bankrupt. The first works to be sold off were French, and mostly to deep-pocketed Americans. A new wave of nationalism in the Interwar years in Scandinavia also caused collectors' interests to shift towards Nordic culture and ideas. Today we find French art - once upon a time in Norway - scattered to the four winds, to North and South America, Japan, Australia, Italy, Germany, France, England and Dubai. Most of the works were sold in the 1920s, but some stayed for decades. The last painting was sold in New York in 2017.
Only the pictures in the National Gallery are still in Norway.
