Vigeland, Gustav

Vigeland, Gustav, 1869-1943, Norwegian sculptor. Vigeland's sculpture owed much to Rodin in stylistic realism but was imbued with an unrestrained romanticism and emotionalism that far surpassed Rodin's. His great undertaking in Frogner Park, Oslo, occupied Vigeland for 40 years. He planned the park and designed numerous granite and bronze sculptural groups, illustrating the development of humanity.
