  • Open to the public

Swedish Academic art in a studio purpose-built for Julius Kronberg (1850-1921).

A contemporary of Anders Zorn (1860-1920) and Carl Larsson (1852-1919), Julius Kronberg trained at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts, Stockholm and in Munich, and made his name at the age of twenty-five with the painting Nymph and Fauns (1875). Although he lived and worked for many years in Paris and Rome, he returned to Stockholm in 1889, where he painted some of his most famous works, decorative commissions for the Royal Palace in Stockholm (1891-93) and the Royal Dramatic Theatre (1906-8).

His purpose-built studio, which was donated to the Nordic Museum in Stockholm at his death in 1921, was later moved to Sweden's outdoor museum, Skansen; in 1991, it was featured on the cover of ABBA's studio album, The Visitors. Today, visitors can view Kronberg's paintings in situ, along with sketches for his frescoes, and the sculptures Kronberg created himself to use as models for his paintings.
