At the top of the “gold house”, designed by Gert Wingårdh and his team of architects, is a replica of the ground floor of Sven-Harry’s 18th-century manor Ekholmsnäs. How was this manor decorated in the 18th century? No one knows today, but, in dialogue with this “rooftop home”, Sven-Harry’s Art Museum is organising an exhibition of an artist who has affectionately portrayed Swedish 18th-century interiors in great detail.
Most of the works in the exhibition belong in private collections and have not been shown to the public before. Nordiska museet, Stockholm University, Norrköpings konstmuseum, Malmö museum, Göteborgs konstmuseum, Gävleborgs museum and Östergötlands museum have also contributed generously to the exhibition.
