ROSEMALING. Rosemaling (which translates to rose painting) is a decorative type of Norwegian painting that has many regional variations. The different styles have the same names as the areas where they developed in Norway, for example Telemark, Valdres, Hallingdal, etc. Rosemaling can be seen on furniture, plates and bowls, trunks, and sometimes interiors of houses.
Norwegian immigrants brought the rosemaling tradition with them to North America, and today there are many accomplished rosemaling artists who practice their craft and teach it to others. View the collection of Rosemaling from Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa and watch the video below about a Norwegian rosemaling painter.CorrectIncorrect
