Here Tómas Guðmundsson is portrayed as a young man, around the time he published “Fagra Veröld (Beautiful World)”. Tómas was one of the first of poets here in Iceland to see the beauty in the city landscape and was considered “The Reykjavík’s Poet”. This location and portrayal is therefore especially beautiful, because you can sit down with him and take in the view that he is looking at; the town he loved and inspired him, Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík – the school he went to at the same time as Halldór Laxness – and the City Hall were two of his poems are written on the windows.
