Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art has the world’s largest collection of sketches and preliminary studies for public artworks.

Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art centres on the sketch as a creative tool. Since 1934, the museum has collected artists’ sketches in many different materials for artworks created for public spaces such as city squares, town halls and schools. The sketches provide an insight into the artist’s working methods and the way in which ideas are explored and take shape. At the same time, the collection reflects aesthetic values and the relationship between art and society. Read more about the collection.
