On a recent extended stint in Stockholm I visited the studios of Swedish sculptor, Carl Eldh (1873 – 1954) – considered one of the most important Swedish artists of the 20th century. Set in the picturesque Bellevueparken, adjacent to Hagaparken, Carl Eldhs Ateljémuseum comprises Eldh’s home and studios, designed by architect Ragnar Östberg and built in 1919.
Eldh was a recognised portrait sculptor due to his unique talent for “the individual”, striving to capture a person’s entire being with depth and sincerity. Unchanged from the days when Eldh called it home, I felt incredibly privileged to visit on a rainy mid-summers day. And as I’m sure you’ll agree, even my hasty snaps are worth a thousand words – NHK.
