Norwegian movie about man chased into a museum by nazis and trapped in painting

This is a movie my mother saw in 1964, but it could have been made earlier. It’s a Norwegian film and involves a Jewish man being chased down by the Nazis. He often visits an art gallery and admires a calming painting of a man fishing. One night he breaks in to escape the Nazis. It is dark so he can’t see the paintings but he knows where his favorite is, so he stands in front of it and wishes himself into the painting. The Nazis can’t find him and leave, and as the camera pans away there are distant screams for help. The paintings had been rearranged during the day and the man is trapped in some horrible scene.

Haven’t been able to track it down. Appreciate any help!
