Isaac Grünewald and Vera Nilsson

From the Storage: Isaac Grünewald and Vera Nilsson

In connection with the on-going Infrastructure Project, sketches of Isaac Grünewald (1889 – 1946) and Vera Nilsson (1888 – 1979) have been retrieved from the storage to be displayed during the summer. Grünewald worked with notable public works and entered a number of large competitions. Here we display approximately 50 sketches to the Stockholm Concert Hall, among others, as well as proposals to the unrealized projects for the National Museum, The Woodland Cemetery in Stockholm, and the City Theatre and Concert Hall in Gothenburg.

Vera Nilsson was the first woman to be elected to the Art Academy in the 1900s and was considered alongside Sigrid Hjérten, as one of the most prominent pioneers among women artists. In the Open Studio, sketches of Vera Nilsson are displayed to a commission for the Central Metro Station in Stockholm, together with several projects in schools in different parts of Sweden.
