17th of May in a Small, Norwegian Town: 'Syttende Mai’!

17th of May in a Small, Norwegian Town: 'Syttende Mai’!

May 17, 2023

17th of May in a Small Norwegian Town is a painting by the renowned Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, created in 1919. The painting depicts a festive scene in a small town in Norway, with crowds of people gathered together to celebrate the country's national holiday, known as "Syttende Mai" or May 17th.


For Munch, who was known for his emotionally charged and often melancholic paintings, 17th of May in a Small Norwegian Town represents a departure from his usual style. Rather than focusing on the darker aspects of human experience, the painting celebrates the simple pleasures of community and togetherness, and captures the spirit of a festive occasion in a way that is both joyous and uplifting.


The painting has become an iconic image of the May 17th celebrations in Norway, and is widely recognized as one of Munch's most optimistic and celebratory works. It serves as a reminder of the importance of community and connection, and of the power of art to capture and celebrate the joys of everyday life.
