The Thiel Gallery is recognized as one of the finest art museums in Sweden and is beautifully set in walled grounds at Blockhusudden in the royal park of Djurgården, in Stockholm. The museum houses a unique collection of works of art from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries with leading artists of the period including Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors, Eugène Jansson, August Strindberg, and Anders Zorn. The Thiel Gallery also has one of the largest collections of Edvard Munch’s art outside of Norway. In the garden, there are sculptures by Gustav Vigeland, Auguste Rodin, and Johan Tobias Sergel.
The building was designed by the well-renowned architect Ferdinand Boberg, specifically to house the banker and art patron Ernest Thiel’s magnificent art collection and was completed in 1907. The Thiel Gallery was also Ernest Thiel’s home from 1907 to 1924 and has remained largely unaltered ever since.
The museum has several temporary exhibitions every year, both with contemporary artists and art historical themes.
