Swedish Art I: A Scent of Wood Tar & Carl Eldhs Art Museum, Bellevue

Carl Eldh’s Art Musuem on the top of the Bellevue Park, Stockholm, a  great wooden house with  a huge collection of sculptural art by Carl Eldh (1873 – 1954). The museum has a beautiful garden with a stunning view over Brunnsviken. What a great location! Outside the garden, on the highest top stands one of Carl Eldhs creations, a high statue ‘The Young Strindberg’.

Walk up there and feel the lovely scent of the tarred wooden plank and house, especially strong on a warm, sunny day!
