The April issue of the free guide What’s On in Reykjavík has been published and as usual contains information on upcoming cultural and artistic events in Iceland’s capital region and coverage of local museums and restaurants.
In this issue, the guide covers the Gljúfrasteinn museum, which used to be the home and office of Icelandic Nobel laureate Halldór Laxness. The author lived there with his family for almost half a century.
In 2004, the Laxness home was turned into a museum. The furniture in Gljúfrasteinn is the same as in the time of Laxness and his wife, Audur. Their collection of paintings includes works by Svavar Gudnason, Nína Tryggvadóttir, Jóhannes Kjarval and Danish painter Asger Jörn.
