Pressmeddelande   •   Maj 30, 2016 13:28 CEST

This year, the castle Sofiero in Helsingborg, Sweden, has its 150th anniversary and 2016 will be marked by the anniversary throughout. One of the features is the jubilee exhibition "Royal artistry" that displays a unique collection of royal art. Welcome to the press preview on the 3rd of June.

In the former private salons of the castle exclusive works will be presented, works created by royals H. M. Queen Margrethe II - textile and illustration, Sigvard Bernadotte - silver design and industrial design, H.K.H. Prince Carl Philip - industrial, Crown Princess Margareta - painting and photography, Prince Eugen - painting, and King Oscar II - poetry.

- We have had a good collaboration with both museums and the royal courts. Among other things, we have borrowed several of Prince Eugen’s works from Waldemarsudde and designs by Georg Jensen in Copenhagen. A perhaps more unknown work is H. M. Queen Margrethe II's original illustrations for the Danish edition of J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, says Annika Malmgren, manager Sofiero.

The exhibition thematically revolves around the encounter between different generations and artistic expressions. This is reflected in the exhibition building, where every room is dedicated to a specific artist’s meeting. The intention is to show the breadth of the different generations of creative expressions. Although there are different decades between the six royal artists their creations have many meeting points.

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will inaugurate the exhibition in conjunction with Sofieros jubilee day on the 6th of June. Read more
