Norwegian artist Odd Nerdrum (b. April 8, 1944)…
He studied at The Art Academy in Oslo, Norway, but became dissatisfied  with the direction of modern art, and began to teach himself how to  paint in a Neo Baroque style, with the guidance of Rembrandt’s technique  and work as a primary influence. In doing so he placed himself in  direct opposition to most aspects of the school, including his primary  painting instructor, his fellow students, and a curriculum designed to  have Norway seen as a country with an up-to-date artistic culture. He,  in his own words was chased from the academy after a two year period  like a “scroungy mutt”.
