Sven-Harry’s art comes “home”
The yellow building constructed by Sven-Harry is home to his art gallery, along with a museum on the top floor which is an exact copy of parts of his house on the island of Lidingö.
The top floor of the museum, which was opened on Sven-Harry’s 80th birthday on 8 December this year, is very different to the rest of the building. According to the blueprint, it is a copy of Sven-Harry’s 18th century mansion, Ekholmsnäs, on Lidingö, and is furnished and filled with a collection of art, like its role model.
Early findings, such as paintings by Hill and Josephson, sit alongside more modern acquisitions such as Ylva Ogland’s portrait of Sven-Harry. Visitors to the museum can walk into Sven-Harry Karlsson’s home and look at the collection he has built up over 35 years of dedicated collecting. MTAB transported and hung up the works.
