Ever heard of this Swedish sculptor and painter? No? Well, now you have.
Bror Hjorth (1894-1968) is considered one of Sweden’s leading 20th century artists and his work is on display in some prominent public spaces around Sweden (there’s a large sculpture outside Uppsala Central Station).
The largest and most representative collection of Bror Hjorth’s (1894-1968) art is on display at Bror Hjorths Hus, the house and studio where he lived and worked, next to the Botanical Garden. You can see paintings, sculptures, reliefs and drawings, along with studies and sketches for his numerous public art commissions.
Bror Hjorth’s celebrates life, love and music. The human body is central to his work. Well, we can’t do justice to his art here, you’re just going to have to visit his delightful house and studio. The museum also has an exhibition wing with interesting art exhibitions and an extensive art educational programme. After or before you’ve seen the museum, fill up on coffee and buns at the adjoining café.
