"Saint olaf at the Battle of Stiklestad" by Leon Goodman


"Saint olaf at the Battle of Stiklestad" by Leon Goodman

£47.50

BEAUTIFUL LARGE LIMITED EDITION GICLEE ART PRINT ON CANVAS " Saint olaf at the Battle of Stiklestad ".. This rare and unusual Canvas print shows the Battle of Stiklestad (Old Norse Stiklarstaðir) in 1030 is one of the most famous battles in the history of Norway. In this battle King Olaf II of Norway (Old Norse Óláfr Haraldsson) lost his life. He was later made a saint. The major reason behind Olaf Haraldsson's success in becoming King of Norway was that Denmark was busy trying to conquer England. In the year 1028 however, the Danish King Canute the Great made an alliance with the Ladejarls, and Olav had to go into exile in Garðaríki . In the year of 1029 Olaf returned to Norway with his army to regain his throne and Norway.According to saga sources, he traveled with his 3,600 men with many fierce Ramarikki Vikings through Sweden and crossed the mountains into Verdal valley, 80 km north of the city of Trondheim. Olav and his men arrived at Stiklestad . This was where the Battle of Stiklestad took place, as described by Snorre in his famous book Heimskringla 200 years later. At Stiklestad, Olav met an army led by Hårek from Tjøtta (ON Hárekr ór Þjóttu), Tore Hund (ON Þórir Hundr) from Bjarkøy and Kalf Arnason (ON Kálfr Árnason), a man who previously served Olav. The peasant army consisted of more than 7,000 men according to Snorre. The battle took place on July 29, 1030 . At the end of the day, Olav's army had lost. During the battle, Olav received three severe wounds and died leaning against a large stone shown in the painting. On top of this stone, the Stiklestad Church was later erected. According to Snorre, his hair had grown since he was buried. Olav was sanctified and given the name Olav den Hellige (Saint Olaf). The Stiklestad Church was erected on top of the stone against which he died. The stone is supposedly still inside the altar of the church. Thus, it accentuated the late king's martyr status, as it egged on common folk in revolting against the hardships enforced by Danish rule. Olav's heroic last stand made for great nation-building material in the immature Norway. Even nature lended a hand, as the day of the battle coincided with a nearly full solar eclipse, as reflected in Snorre's description of an ill-fated 'blooded red sun', interpreted as a certain omen of bad things to come. Tore Hund a fierce pagan Viking is shown stabbing st Olaf.Tore had joined the anti olaf faction on the side of Canute.But as Tore stabbed Olaf he himself was hit with the wrong side of an axe.The Axe wielder was instantly stabbed himself. ...... ..............................BY THE SUPERB GOODMAN WHO IS AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST HAVING BEEN A FINALIST AT THE GARRICK-MILNE PRIZE.HE HAS MANY OF HIS WORKS SOLD AT CHRISTIES.

GUARANTEED TO BE 100% ORIGINAL AND GENUINE WITH C.O.A. Leon Goodman has been a professional artist for the majority of his working life. His work has been sold at The Omell Gallery, Ascot, as well as Christies, the fine art auction house in London.Many of his works have sold for thousands of pounds to the U.S.Please check out www.leon-goodman.com . Since seeing his work, Risborough Art Gallery have made him a regularly featured artist. Leon’s philosophy is that it is not the delineation of the subject which is important, but its fragmentation. He believes a strictly photographic image does not allow the viewer to participate in the painting. If the image is fragmented, the viewer can imagine for himself the missing parts and involve himself in the creation of the whole image. The viewer has seen his own interpretation of the fragmented images; the next viewer may see something different.
