European Cultural Life
Skansen is a favorite both among Stockholmers and visitors passing through, and it’s a perfect family outing. This is the oldest open-air museum in the world and also the Stockholm zoo, with animals native to Scandinavia.
Pablo Picasso’s relationship with his first wife Olga Khokhlova can be seen in his paintings. From the birth of their son Paul until the appearance of Marie-Thérèse Walter, who will become the painter’s lover, this exhibition shows a selection of paintings, drawings, furniture, written documents and photographs that show the development of their relationship.
Welcome to one of the largest palaces in Europe! The Royal Palace is the official residence of His Majesty the King of Sweden, with over 600 rooms.
The Palace is open to the public and offers no less than five museums. The Palace was largely built during the eighteenth century in the Italian Baroque style, on the spot where the “Tre Kronor” castle burned down in 1697.
Curated by Carl Brandon Strehlke (Curator Emeritus, Philadelphia Museum of Art), this exhibition will investigate the beginnings of the Florentine Renaissance art in the 1420s and 1430s with the friar painter Fra Angelico at the center of the story.
Fra Angelico is one of the great masters of Renaissance art and responsible for its early achievements in Florence alongside the painters Masaccio, Masolino, Uccello and Filippo Lippi, the sculptors Ghiberti, Donatello, and Nanni di Banco, and the architect Brunelleschi.
