Curator’s talk - Eiríkur Þorláksson. Ásmundarsafn – From Sketch to Sculpture. Sunday 11 December, 3 pm.

Sunday 11 December, 3 p.m. Eiríkur Þorláksson, art historian and former director of Reykjavik Art Museum participates in a curator’s talk in relation to the exhibition From Sketch to Sculpture - Drawings by Ásmundur Sveinsson.

The exhibition presents a small insight into the rich collection of drawings by the sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson. A selection has been made among the works based on subjects, which can be identified throughout the collection. Also included at the exhibition are a number of drawings that can be tied to known sculptures by the artist, especially from his earlier years. The drawings cover a wide range of subjects; devotional drawings, landscape, form studies, portraits, model studies and a variety of other things

The drawings of Ásmundur Sveinsson have not been exhibited extensively, and the selection here is bound to capture the attention of all those that are interested in getting to know this new chapter in the history of art in Iceland and in the oeuvre of this great artist.  

The talk will take place in Icelandic.
