Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities
The art and antiques interested in the King Gustav III of Sweden who purchased the majority of the museum’s sculptures during a trip to Italy in the late 1700’s. Shortly after King Gustav III’s death, it was decided that the collections, which consisted of over 200 sculptures, would be exhibited in honor of the deceased king.
Exhibition rooms consist of two galleries in the castle’s north-east wing, with beautiful views of Logården. The sculptures are placed in the galleries exactly as they were originally. In the Greater Gallery of the collection there is a splendid sculpture - Endymion - which aroused great admiration in the 1700s.#Sweden #Gustavian style #neoclassical #late rococo #18th century
