"In the Fairy-tale Room in the hotel at Holmenkollen, near Oslo, Munthe's carved wooden wall panels and doorframes with monster-like trolls combined with his furniture and textiles to make a Gesamtkunstwerk" - quote source
"Gerhard Peter Frantz Munthe (19 July 1849, Elverum, Hedmark – 15 January 1929) was a Norwegian painter and illustrator.
When Munthe moved to Christiania in 1863, his intention was to study medicine like his father, but his father advised him to take up the arts. He studied under Johan Fredrik Eckersberg in 1870, and continued under Morten Müller and Knud Bergslien until 1874. Between 1874 and 1876 he studied under Andreas Achenbach and his third cousin Ludvig Munthe in Düsseldorf. From 1877 to 1882 he lived in Munich most of the time. However, many of his motifs were taken from Norway. At this time he painted in the naturalist style. He is represented with several works in the National Gallery of Norway. Internationally he took part at the Exposition Universelle of 1900, the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904 and elsewhere.
From the 1890s he experimented with decorative art in the Arts and Crafts style. From 1896 to 1899 he was occupied with illustrating the works of Snorri Sturluson, together with Erik Werenskiold, whom he had met in Munich. Some of his works were woven into large tapestries. He also created monumental decorations, some of which have been lost, as was his house at Lysaker which was consumed by fire in 1982." - quote source
"Munthe himself said that the inspiration for the socalled Fairytale Moods came from three sources: old, Norwegian patterns and woven textiles, a child-like imagination, and the ancient stories that came before folktales; “ A fine time, when Trolls were never stupid in a good-hearted way – they were cunning Jotuns in a time where all was blood and iron and far more terrible” - Dagens Nyheter, 17.1.1894" - quotation taken from pdf article on the artist titled "The Fairytaleworld of Gerhard Munthe"
