Alfred Oster – graphic pioneer

Article publié le 29 September 2020

Alfred Oster (1893-1967) is a Norwegian graphic designer born in 1893 in Kristiania. Oster produced very expressive portraits and was purchased by the National Gallery in 1915 and 1916. He co-founded the Norwegian Graphic Designers Association in 1919. The Jewish Museum in Oslo now displays ten of Alfred Oster’s portraits – and one overview of the history of his Jewish family. Along with the images, a sketch is given of Oster’s artistic life and his work as a member of an association, both in the world of graphics and in Jewish society.
