Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd


A generous donation from Reuterswärd

Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd is internationally one of Sweden’s most famous artists and he has made a generous donation to Dansmuseet: a number of paintings created for the opera Herr von Hancken. Six of these paintings are now exhibited in the museum´s Bistro Rolf de Maré.

This Swedish opera was created for The Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm in 1965. It was set to music by Karl-Birger Blomdahl and based on a novel by Swedish author Hjalmar Bergman. Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd,  who had studied with Fernand Léger in Paris in the early fifties, was already a famous name as a painter and was commissioned to create the set and costumes for the new opera. He also created a number of paintings related to this work and some of these are now donated to the museum and on display in our Bistro. Reuterswärd´s most famous work is perhaps the sculpture called Non Violence, a revolver with a knot, which can be seen all over the world as a symbol for piece.
