I am a Norwegian art historian currently doing research for a book on
Californian-Norwegian artist, Jan Valentin Saether (b. 1944, also known as
Jan Isak Saether).

Norwegian born and trained, Saether moved to Los Angeles in 1973, after
completing the National Academy of Fine Arts. He stayed in California for 21
years where he worked as a professional artist and ran his own art school,
Bruchion, before returning to Oslo, Norway in 1995 to accept the position of
professor of figurative art at the National Academy of Fine Arts there. (His
only competitor for the position was painter Odd Nerdrum.

Saether is one of the finest artists of figurative painting in Norway, and
is represented both in Norwegian, European and American collections.

His homepage is situated at: www.handtomouth.net/JVS. Here you will find
artworks, bibliography, curriculum vitae, and fulltext articles.
