Eventyret Anne Grimdalen by Hans Nerhus

Oslo: Forlaget Form og Farge, [1960]  Hardcover in dustjacket measuring 8.25 by 10.5 inches and composed of 134 pp.  Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs of Grimdalen and her sculptures.  I believe the book was issued in both a regular edition and a signed, limited edition; this copy being Signed in pink by Grimdalen on the limitation page and is copy 97 of 99.  Gift inscription on a preliminary page from Olav Grimdalen dating from 1978 and offering the book as a souvenir of their visit to Grimdalen's studio.  Text entirely in Norwegian.

Produced for Grimdalen's on her 60th birthday, the book is something of a catalog raisonne.  Illustrated with more than one hundred photographs of Grimdalen and her works.  At the rear of the book are more than ten pages of printed congratulations from various prominent Norwegians.  She died the year after the books production.

Very Good book in a Fair only jacket.  The jacket has a large tape repair on the front cover that extends all the way through the front flap.  Jacket also shows a few minor tears and nicks.  The book with just a mild bit of wear to the boards, binding is solid, contents are clean and free of damage.  Protected in a new Brodart wrap.

Bio of Anne Grimdalen from Wikipedia:

"Anne Grimdalen (1 November 1899 – 3 October 1961) was a Norwegian sculptor. She was born on the mountain farm Grimdalen in Skafså, Telemark, and later also lived and worked in the so-called Kunstnerdalen in Asker. She worked mainly with granite, and also bronze. She is represented at the National Gallery of Norway, and was one of the main contributors to the decorations of Oslo City Hall.

Grimdalen studied at the Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry from 1923 to 1926, at the Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts (1927–1929) under Wilhelm Rasmussen, and in Copenhagen under Einar Utzon-Frank. She made study travels to Italy (1933–34), Greece (1935), Paris and Italy (1938), and London (1947). Two of her inspirators were the painters Henrik Sørensen and Otto Valstad.

The art museum Grimdalstunet was later built at her home farm Grimdalen in Skafså (now within Tokke municipality), and contains a collection of more than 250 of her sculptures. The mountain farm itself is also a museum, with buildings from the time of barter economy in the 17th century.

Grimdalen is especially known for her many animal sculptures, made in a simplistic style, often in granite, such as Gaupe (Lynx, 1928), Bjørn (Bear, 1933). She made several contributions to the decoration of Oslo City Hall, after surprisingly winning the decoration contest in 1938, such as Tømmerfløtere (Log drivers) and Dyrefontene (Animal fountain), and the large equestrian statue of Harald III on the west wall (1938–1950). A relief of psalmist Magnus Brostrup Landstad (1951) is placed outside the church of Seljord.

Later works are the monuments of Anders Hovden (1958, ørsta), Audun Hugleiksson (1959, Jølster) and Håkon den Gode (1961, Fitjar). She is represented at the National Gallery of Norway (Jenta på hesten, Riding girl, bronze, 1931)."
