Since it was settled by Norse Vikings in the 9th century Iceland has been one of Europe's
most important centres of literature and art. The Icelandic Sagas are unique in the literary
history of the continent and are still widely read today. Writers like Snorri Sturluson
have entertained and informed readers since the 12th century. Since these early beginnings of art
in Iceland countless Icelandic artists; authors, poets, painters and sculptors have created a body of art
larger than the relatively low population of the island would suggest. Novels, stories,
short-stories, plays, poems, paintings, sculptures have been created that combine international
influences with the unique spirit of Iceland in interesting works of art. These pages are
dedicated to a few Icelandic artists and their work. Both writers and painters are included and you
can browse online galleries as well as read about books, children's books, theatre-pieces and other literary works.
Enjoy.

Online since 9. september 1999.
