The Collection

The Collection of the Carl Eldh Studio Museum
The Carl Eldh Studio Museum collection consists mainly of sketches and models of Carl Eldh's art works. It houses over 1000 sketches and original models in plaster, and also sculptures in clay, marble and bronze. About half of these are exhibited in the well-preserved studio, as Eldh once left them. Portraits of politicians, royals, and celebrities from the world of culture, gaze down at the visitor from the shelves, and beside these are statuettes and nude studies. Original models of well-known statues, monuments and sculpture groups are placed close together on modelling stands and pedestals in both studio rooms. The many sculptures share the space together with the artist's tools, drawings, medals, and furniture. The museum also contains his private art collection with works from both well-known and less famous artist friends.

Lparna_Hjelte.jpgAn inventory of the museum has been started, but due to lack of financial resources there is, as yet, no complete catalogue.

Archive and library
The collection of the Carl Eldh Studio Museum also includes the artist's library, and a rather extensive archive material of letters and notes, various documents, newspaper cuttings, a large number of photographs and photographic plates. This material remains partly to be sorted, registered and archived before it can be made accessible to researchers and to the public.
