The water dripping from the oars is our work

Sven-Harry's Art Gallery is proud to present a major solo exhibition of Harald Lyth. In this exhibition, Harald has chosen to show works from the period 2000-2013.

Harald Lyth (b. 1937 in Gothenburg) has had an impressive career. He attended the Konstindustriskolan in Gothenburg in 1955-59, before proceeding to the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm in 1960-65. Less than 25 years later, he returned to take up a position there as a professor of painting.

Harald Lyth has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including a solo show in New York in 2009.

His designs for public spaces are grandiose, such as the monumental glass walls at Karolinska Institutet, the SEB head office in Rissne and the Bonnier House in Stockholm. In 1994, Harald Lyth created large, shimmering blue tapestries, measuring 11 metres in length, for the Posten head office.

He has also designed numerous stage sets for Nationaltheatret in Oslo, including the sets for Strindberg's A Dream Play and Botho Strauss' The Park. In 2014, Nationaltheatret will perform Jean Genet's drama The Maids, with stage design by Lyth.
