Kjarval, one of the giants of 20th century Icelandic art. A private guided tour will introduce you to Kjarval's extraordinary body of work. Following the tour, there will be an optional lunch break at the museum's bistro. You'll then proceed to Höfuðstöðin for a viewing of Chromo Sapiens—a multisensory installation created by Icelandic artist Shoplifter (Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir).
