Skissernas Museum information
The exhibition rooms here with their visual feast of paintings and sculpture are designed for maximum impact and art immersion. Several sculptures and installations are huge, including the 6m-high Women by the Sea by Ivar Johnsson. Formerly a private collection, it includes works by some of the world’s greats, including Joan Miró, Henri Matisse, Raoul Dufy, Sonia Delaunay and Fernand Léger. A sculpture park includes pieces by Henry Moore, and a Mexican gallery space will be completed by early 2015.
