Reykjavik Art Museum Ásmundarsafn “I choose blossoming women …” Woman as Symbol in the Art of Ásmundur Sveinsson

1 May 2010 - 17 April 2011

Ásmundarsafn

Many of Ásmundur Sveinsson’s works of art depict women – from loving mothers to domestic labourers, from sensitive souls to wild ogresses. They can be signifiers of shared feelings, or allegories for natural phenomena or literature. The works in the exhibition span the entire career of the sculptor, tracing his oeuvre from early realistic renditions to much-stylised representations of his female subjects. Curated by Yean Fee Quay.

In the pyramid Ásmundur’s studio has been recreated, to give an idea of his working environment in Sigtún. In a reading room, visitors can learn more about the artist’s life and work.


Sunday 29 August 2 p.m.
