Nerdrum Sentenced to Jail

Odd NerdrumApparently Odd Nerdrum had some paintings fall apart, for which he set aside monies in case any buyers needed to be refunded, and has now been sentenced to two years in prison for tax evasion. Reports say he will likely appeal. Nerdrum claimed it was the Norwegian state trying to destroy him and “push [him] towards suicide.”

    I am in a state of shock. I am one of Nerdrum’s summer students – he is most generous and kind and if (as the report says) he’s been paying his (most likely outrageous) taxes that were levied, and has been current since, they should just leave him alone. Let the Master paint!
