Admire the impressive collection of Scandinavian art housed in a historic mansion at Thielska Galleriet. The gallery displays the collection of Ernest Thiel, a wealthy banker and a renowned art enthusiast, and is located inside his former home. The mansion itself is a sight to see, the work of famous architect Ferdinand Boberg, completed in 1907. Inside, next to period furnishings, you can see works of celebrated artists such as Bruno Liljefors, Anders Zorn, and Edvard Munch. In addition to Scandinavian masters, many of whom were Thiel's personal friends, the gallery also displays works of Paul Gauguin and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, while its garden is adorned by Auguste Rodin's sculptures. The mansion is not wheelchair-accessible and features a few staircases which might be difficult to navigate for visitors with reduced mobility.
