Abstract :
Published in conjunction with an exhibition of Icelandic painter Jóhannes S. Kjarval's sketches for mid-1920s monumental murals depicting the story of the Icelandic fishing industry, located in the Bank of Iceland's main building. Includes essays: 'Veggmyndir af vinnandi fólki' [Murals of working people], by Júlíana Gottskálksdóttir; 'Fiskidísir og flugfiskar' [Fish fairies and flying fishes], on Kjarval's interpretations of the subject matter of the main mural, by Adalsteinn Ingólfsson; 'Hugleidingar um adferd' [Reflections on the technique], a study of the artist's technique - often considered to be buon fresco - concluding that he probably started out using traditional buon fresco but later changed over to fresco secco and possibly other techniques, by Viktor Smári Saemundsson. ;
