A retrospective of Gunnar Hjaltason’s works is now on view in Hafnarborg’s Sverrissalur. Gunnar (1920-1999) worked in Hafnarfjörður as a goldsmith for years, but the arts were his true passion. His works were exhibitied widely in Iceland. He painted in oil, acrylics and watercolour, but Hafnarborg’s exhibition focuses on his prints, many of which belong to the Hafnarborg Collection. The images depict landscapes, town views of Hafnarfjörður and the Icelandic nature, as Gunnar was a great outdoorsman, having illustrated numerous yearbooks of the Iceland Touring Association (Ferðafélag Íslands).
