Over the centuries, fashions in the art market have been manifest in diverse forms. The book brings together works from the 16th century until today and sheds light for the first time on the broad field that interconnects art and buying.


Olav Christopher Jenssen

Olav Christopher Jenssen's aesthetic constantly astounds with exhilaratingly fresh abstractions, the most delicate web-like lines and intense swathes of colour. Like a broad river that is fed by individual streams, Jenssen’s oeuvre emerges as if from a constantly branching chain of variations on painting, which links imagination and memory, vitality and art.

“Enigma” presents more than 60 mainly large-scale works produced between 1985 and 2012, providing a vibrant cross-section through almost all of Jenssen's paintings, drawings and sculptures.
