Guðmundur Thorsteinsson - Muggur

Gudmundur Thorsteinsson, Muggur, 1891-1924. Muggur studied at the Royal Painting Academy in Copenhagen. His works are characterized by a dreamlike and playful quality. The influence of impressionism - such artists as Toulouse-Lautrec and, later, Picasso - can be seen in his work. Some of his best known paintings are from 1916 and 1918, including Herring Ball in Siglufjördur.
