A Swedish mansion displaying the French and Nordic art collected by the landscape painter Prince Eugen (1865-1947).

Prince Eugen was the youngest son of Prince Oscar, Duke of Östergötland, later Oscar II of Sweden. He studied History of Art at Uppsala University, and soon became a significant patron and collector of Nordic and French art, as well as a landscape artist in his own right. He bought Waldemarsudde in 1899, and built a home and studio here, which he bequeathed to the Swedish state - along with his collection - at his death in 1949.

Waldermasudde is today one of the most popular art museums in Sweden, with a lively events and exhibition programme. It displays works from Prince Eugen's collection, including works by Edvard Munch (1863-1944), Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), Ernst Josephson (1851-1906), Anders Zorn (1860-1920), Isaac Grünewald (1889-1946) and Sigrid Hjertén (1885-1948). The museum also displays a selection of Prince Eugen's own artworks, and his former apartments and park, alongside a series of temporary exhibitions.
