A visit to the Museum of Sketches for Public Art ( Skissernas museum – Arkiv för dekorativ konst), also known as the Archive of Decorative Art, is indeed a pleasant visit. In the Header a suite I loved: Raoul Dufy’s La Fée Électricité (Paris 1937). The Art museum at Lund University in Sweden, is dedicated to the collection and display of sketches and drawings for contemporary monumental and public art, such as frescoes, sculpture and reliefs.
The museum was founded in 1934 by Ragnar Josephson (1891–1966), professor of the History and Theory of Art at Lund University. Josephson wanted to collect material illuminating the creative process of the artist – not only the finished artwork itself. The collection opened to the public in 1941 in a building close to the Lund University Library.
I studied for many years in Lund, saw the sign every day, but never visited. Finally, now I did – better late than never! And it was well worth the visit.

What a wonderful museum! It was nice to see the process of creating preserved.
I thought so too – never heard of a museum for the process before.
So much to see! 🙂 🙂
Yes – I need colours!
Looks a most fascinating place, A C….Next time I’m in Sweden
Wow! That looks quite a gallery. I love the way the walls are packed with interest, though it must induce neck-ache and a bad case of Museum Foot.
My bad neck had me lying on the floor to see everything…and I love ”Museum Foot” – what is it? I can guess, but never heard it before.
I’m not sure if it’s an actual expression, but it’s current in our family. That very special exhaustion caused by spending too long slowly going from exhibit to exhibit. Usually curable by a very brisk walk in the open air! Your neck can’t have been happy in that exhibition. Hope it’s easier now.
Love it – I will borrow it from you!
Beautiful pictures of stunning artwork and the views. I can imagine eyes darting everywhere to take it all in. I thoroughly enjoyed this walk with you .
Thank you for coming along! I loved the light and the colourful mix of artworks.
