About the collection

The collection at Skissernas Museum Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art includes works by both Swedish and international artists.

The collection currently consists of around 30 000 works by both Swedish and international artists from the early 1900s to today. These works include everything from a rapidly scribbled pencil sketch or copper wire models only a few centimetres tall, to five metre-high plaster sculptures and, in certain cases, even completed works. Since the museum was founded in 1934, artists have donated or sold their sketches to the museum, which also actively acquires new art so that its collection can show representative and current examples of contemporary public art.
