Thiel Gallery Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

A house with paintings covering all the walls: this is how Ernest Thiel dreamt of his house. Spurned by high society, this rich banker had this Art Nouveau residence built on the heights of Djurgården, to house his collection of works of art that he bought or ordered with his second wife. But when he went bankrupt in 1924, the State bought his collection and soon opened it to the public. This is a fine collection of works of Swedish painters of the end of the 19 C. From Zorn to Strindberg (tormented landscapes) from Prince Eugene to Larsson. But the main attraction is the collection of canvasses by Munch: iThe Kiss, The Night, On the Bridge, a Portrait of Gauguin, a version of iThe Scream, a Portrait of Nietzsche., etc. There is also an equally rich collection of engravings by the artist. Another important artist in the gallery is Ernst Josephson; a fine collection of portraits, Autumn Sun and The Spanish Dwarf.
