Suzy Strindberg – Fine Threads

January 20 – April 22, 2018

This spring, a selection of the beautifully embroidered and tiny landscapes by Suzy Strindberg (b. 19xx) will be shown in the so-called Bernadotte Room at Waldemarsudde. Her inspiration is primarily obtained from the island of Öland and its limestone plain Stora Alvaret. The stitching in her images is minute and made by using very thin silk treads. Strindberg’s works are unique in our time – the process is slow and complex. A work can sometimes take several months to complete. The Waldemarsudde exhibition offers a unique possibility for visitors to see a number of Suzy Strindberg’s works in a rich presentation.

Sigrid Hjertén – A Masterly Colourist

February 10 – August 26, 2018

Sigrid Hjertén (1885–1948) is a front figure of the Swedish Modernist avantgarde. In her early days, she was a pupil of Henri Matisse´s in Paris, where she was also influenced by the art of Paul Cézanne. Hjertén’s expressive colourist painting caused her to be both feted and maligned by her contemporaries. The exhibition features a large number of her works from the 1910s and up to her critically-acclaimed breakthrough in the 1930s, when some of her most captivating and colouristically intense works were painted. Parallelly, a small number of paintings by her husband Isaac Grünewald and son Iván Grünewald, will also be displayed.
