Visit Nationalmuseum at Konstakademien while the museum building is closed for renovation. This summer’s exhibition, Highlights, features a selection of the museum’s most well-known and beloved works of art.
Nationalmuseum is Sweden premier museum och art and design. The collections comprise older paintings, sculpture, drawings and graphic art, and applied art and design up to the present day. The museum building is currently under renovation and scheduled to open again in 2017. Meanwhile, the museum’s activities are continuing in other locations, including at its temporary address at Konstakademien (The Royal Swedish Academy of fine Arts), Fredsgatan 12, right in the centre of Stockholm. Three to four exhibitions per year will be presented here. This summer’s exhibition, Highlights: Famous and Forgotten Art Treasures from Nationalmuseum, features some of the museum’s most well-known and beloved works of art, from paintings by Rembrandt, Boucher, Morisot, Zorn and Strindberg to 18th Century porcelain from Meissen to Swedish applied arts from the 1900s and much more. In part of the exhibition, Selfies-Now and Then, older portraits meet images from today in a discussion about self-image and identity.
