Ice and Snow:
Gustaf Fjæstad and others

9 December – 9 January 2023/24

In this year's winter exhibition, Åmells highlighted the changing stages of the Nordic winter and rich variety in art. For artists in general and landscape painters in particular, winter brings both challenge and inspiration, and in the exhibition the many faces of winter were depicted in forest areas as well as in frozen lakes, archipelago environments, urban landscapes and the Norrland panorama. In the presentation, the effects of the cool winds were just as clearly felt in Gustaf Fjæstad's sparkling winter pieces and Roland Svensson's paintings of the snow covered archipelago as in Frits Thaulow's counterparts from Norway or August Hagborg, Anton Genberg and Nils Kreuger's Stockholm scenes.

Autumn show

4 – 25 November 2023

When Åmells began producing annual autumn and spring shows nearly forty years ago, the idea was that they should reflect both the breadth and depth of our steady supply of high-class Nordic art. In terms of time and style, the works spanned over a hundred years, from the second half of the 19th century to the mid-1960s. In terms of motifs, most artistic genres were covered: portraits and landscapes, still lifes, interior pictures, fairytale motifs, marines and city views. Among the highlights this autumn were Anders Zorn's portrait of Gods-Kari and Helene Schjerfbeck's Girl with a long neck, Ingeborg Westfelt-Eggertz's Self-portrait with a cigarette, Carl Holsöe's fine-tuned Interior with a young woman reading by a window, Erik Olson's alter ego in Interior with a view, GAN's Industri and Carl Kylberg's Figure on balcony. With this, Åmells wanted to emphasise that we were proud to once again be able to present a richly varied, high-quality and representative Autumn show with several brilliant works.

Bruno Liljefors
with Brush and Rifle

16 September – 7 October 2023

Bruno Liljefors: with Brush and Rifle offered a comprehensive overview of Liljefors' extensive body of work, ranging from the early tentative successes of his youth to the mature artist's masterful interpretations of his perspective on nature. The individual pieces showcased both wild and domesticated animals, portrayed in forested plains, meadows, wetlands, archipelagos, and coastal landscapes. Several paintings also captured the unique relationship between humans and dogs in hunting scenarios. Bruno Liljefors was an avid hunter himself, and the phenomenon of hunting fascinated him on various levels. Most of the displayed works were created using oil or watercolour, although the selection also included drawings, oil studies, and sculptures. Furthermore, the majority of these works had recently been exhibited at the Jamtli art museum in Östersund during 2022-23. Just like the curators at Jamtli, Åmells aimed to emphasise with this exhibition that Bruno Liljefors' art never loses its relevance. In a world where untouched nature is increasingly becoming a scarce resource, his subjects evoke a deep sense of yearning within us.

Flowers and Leaves
still lifes of all time

7 – 26 August 2023

Flowers and leaves: still lifes of all times were a contribution to the understanding of the meaning and function of leaves and flowers in the pictorial tradition of painting, as much as independent still life motifs as clear elements in other stylistic means of expressions. The emphasis was on 20th century painting with the exhibition taking its temporal point of departure in a stately early modern floral piece. The presentation then moved on past the Danish Golden Age towards the late 19th century masters and the modern breakthrough to finally reach the modernist pinnacle. The exhibition contained genuine floral still lifes as well as views, landscape pictures and interior motifs, all of which were united in their separate, but skillful, representations of nature's delightful representatives.

Islets and rocks
Roland Svensson and others

10 June – 7 July 2023

The painter's meeting with islets and rocks, coast and sea was the common thread in the 2023 summer exhibition at Åmells. The exhibition was based on Roland Svensson's atmospheric depictions of the Stockholm archipelago landscape. The thematic cohesion in the presentation was defined by the overarching sea theme and the variety found in the seascape. Among the artists represented, in addition to Roland Svensson, were painters such as Axel Sjöberg as well as prominent generational peers such as Oskar Bergman and Albert Engström. Also highlighted were Thure Wallner and Christian Swensson, as well as Maria Wiik and the contemporary mediator Jonas Nilsson, who took place among the colleagues with animal depictions that allowed the viewer get really close to the seabirds in careful, slightly impressionistic works.

Spring Show

22 April – 13 May 2023

When Åmells welcomed the spring of 2023, the emphasis was on all the scents and colours of the bright season. The painting by Carl Larsson (1853–1919) that graced the cover of the comprehensive catalog was just one of many examples of what Åmell's Spring Show had to offer from the Nordic art treasure. The presentation also contained works by Georg Pauli, Olle Olsson-Hagalund, Einar Jolin, Anna Palm de Rosa and Isaac Grünewald among many others. In Carl Larsson's watercolor Evening Blush, it was the Nordic summer evening that framed the main motif and conveyed the special mood that penetrates so deeply into many art-loving souls. Also participating were Gothenburg colourists such as Ivan Ivarson and Inge Schiöler as well as Sigrid Hjertén, Agnes Cleve and Vera Nilsson, along with Anders Zorn and Albert Edelfeldt.

Helmer Osslund
Tones of Norrland

18 march – 6 april 2023

In the exhibition Tones of Norrland, Helmer Osslund's depictions of the Norrland landscape were presented in high-pitched compositions that reproduce the tones and shades of nature in symphonies of colour. With an expressive use of colour that seems unique in Swedish art history, Osslund gradually conquered Norrland, from Gästrikland in the south to Laponia in the north. He discovered the beauty and vicissitudes of vast landscapes he found, where his brush captured burning autumn forests, the drama of clouds in the sky and the reflection of water in rivers. Influences from Paul Gauguin and other continental experiences together with a view of nature that was slightly poetic produced highly personal stories from silent, often deserted but consistently expressive expanses.

Modern Pioneers
GAN and the Halmstad Group

4 – 25 february 2023

With this presentation, Åmells wanted to give the art audience yet another example of the rich variety of Swedish modernism. At the same time, the significance of the friendships and mutual exchanges of artistic experience that often arose across both national and generational boundaries in interwar European art metropolises was highlighted. In the exhibition, GAN – Gösta Adrian-Nilsson – represented the Swedish avant-garde in the early 20th century. The Halmstad Group, in turn, interested the older colleague in the inner reality that can be expressed through surrealism. GAN and the Halmstad Group had a close relationship for many years and will probably always remain closely connected in Swedish art history. This exhibition was, if nothing else, a reminder of that.

Jonas Nilsson
– från fjäll till hav

17 – 22 december 2022 and 9 – 14 januari 2023

The anniversary year's exhibition program was filled with ventures that were all out of the ordinary, and the last presentation of the year was no exception. Jonas Nilsson should by now be familiar to most people who have followed Åmell's operations in recent years. When he returned to the gallery for a fifth solo exhibition, the opportunity was given for deeper insights into his circle of motifs. In Jonas Nilsson - from mountains to sea, the gaze was directed towards nature's varied visual world, and especially the kingdom of birds. With pen and eye, binoculars and sketchpad, Nilsson chases the immediate moments on nature's stage. Jonas Nilsson was born in 1968 and lives and works in Uppsala, where he works in both oil and watercolour. He has exhibited on around forty occasions in Sweden and abroad.

West Coast
Painters
– from Carl Wilhelmson to Inge Schiöler

26 november – 10 december 2022

Västkustmålarna: from Carl Wilhelmson to Inge Schiöler was last among Åmell's theme initiatives during the Jubilee Year 2022, when we celebrated that it was 100 years since we were established in Stockholm. The exhibition connected to the year's previous gatherings in such a way that the content was concentrated on motifs and artistry that were not included in any of the Jubilee Year's previous presentations, and here there were common denominators between all the artists who were represented this time. The exhibition originated in Carl Wilhelmson and contained works by, among others, Anna Gardell Ericson, Carl Kylberg, Ragnar Sandberg, Ivan Ivarson and Johan Ericson and, of course, Inge Schiöler.

Anniversary
Exhibition
Åmells 100 years

8 – 29 october 2022

In 2022, it was exactly 100 years since Åmells started its operations in Stockholm, and in connection with this year's traditional Autumn Show, Åmells wanted to draw a little extra attention to the 100th anniversary. We did that by letting the Autumn Show take the form of an imaginative Jubilee exhibition where quality-packed seriousness was mixed with irreverent style clashes. The Anniversary Exhibition: Åmells 100 years was an exposé of our hundred-year history, where the overall presentation revolved around three eras in Åmell's history: the antiques trade, the art trade and the gallery.

Ivan Aguéli

3 – 17 september 2022

Åmell's 100th anniversary celebration meant, among other things, a major investment in themed exhibitions about important and interesting artists. Ivan Aguéli (1869–1917) was an artist who went his own way and reached places, both physical and philosophical but above all artistic, that few Swedes before him had explored. For Aguéli, colour and composition functioned as metaphors for a spiritual reality where the different colours had different symbolic meaning, and in the exhibition Ivan Aguéli's unique view of art was manifested with versatile and shifting landscapes from Sweden, France, Spain and North Africa.

Sky & Sea
Axel Sjöberg &
Roland Svensson

11 june – 8 july 2022

In the summer exhibition during Åmell's 100th anniversary, the archipelago painters' rich collection of works was presented, where the effect of light on sky and sea is depicted in seascapes immersed in golden sunsets and atmospheric nocturnes. With the exhibition Sky & Sea – Axel Sjöberg & Roland Svensson, the emphasis was placed on the artistry of Axel Sjöberg and Roland Svensson, but there were also other like-minded portrayers of the breathtaking biotope that is the Stockholm archipelago.

Hjertén & Grünewald
Masterful modernist duo

30 april – 21 may 2022

Hjertén & Grünewald was the second theme exhibition of the Jubilee Year 2022 and was a comprehensive presentation of two of the leading figures of Swedish modernism: the artist duo Sigrid Hjertén and Isaac Grünewald. An important aspect highlighted in the exhibition was the couple's mutual respect and admiration for each other's work. The exhibition featured roughly 35 works in oil, watercolour, gouache and ink, several public decoration and illustration assignments as well as costume sketches for the theatre. Grünewald's late production of floral still lifes was also abundantly represented. The exhibition included a 96-page, richly illustrated catalog with a newly written introductory essay by Görel Cavalli-Björkman, professor of art history and former head of research at the National Museum.

Spring Show

19 march – 6 april 2022

Åmell's 100-year celebration permeated all exhibitions and events during the Anniversary Year 2022, which meant that the Spring Show had a little extra focus on the art that was new and groundbreaking when Åmells was founded. In addition to the exhibition's mixed selection of modernists such as Leander Engström, Hilding Linnqvist and Carl Milles, touches were made on 1920s Swedish avant-garde, which mainly included Erik Olson and Esaias Thorén, but also Gösta Adrian-Nilsson and Otto G. Carlsund. However, the spring exhibition did not only contain Swedish modernism and its various expressions. There were also outstanding works that were performed only a few decades earlier, but which reflected the ideals that were prevalent during the late 19th century and the time around the turn of the century 1900.

Carl Fredrik Hill

5 – 26 februari 2022

This exhibition started the Jubilee Year 2022 when Åmells celebrated 100 years. The exhibition, which was the largest exhibition with the Hill in decades, included a total of 28 works and spanned the artist's entire life and artistry. In addition to The Tree and the River Bend, another five oil paintings were shown, including from the famous series of Seine landscape and flowering fruit trees from Bois-le-Roi. All the oils shown were created before Hill suffered from the paranoid schizophrenic psychosis that became acute around the turn of 1877/78. The exhibition included a richly illustrated catalogue, which included an introductory essay by the prominent Hill expert Sten Åke Nilsson, professor emeritus of art history at Lund University.

Vita vidder
Winter Landscapes

11 december 2021 – 15 january 2022

For artists in general and landscape painters in particular, winter brings both a challenge and a fascination, and the exhibition depicts the many faces of winter in archipelago environments and forest areas as well as in lakes, urban motifs and the Norrland panorama. In the exhibition, the effects of the cool winds were just as clearly visible in Roland Svensson's and Axel Sjöberg's captivating paintings of the archipelago in various stages of winter wear as in Helmer Osslund's highly chilled Norrland scenery and Gustaf Fjæstad's frosty water mirrors. The exhibition also included a rare winter motif by Carl Larsson together with works by Frits Thaulow, Moose Stoopendal, Thure Wallner, Prince Eugen and Nils Kreuger.

The artistic
perspective
Rolf Wertheimer

27 november – 10 december 2021

The artistic perspective presented Rolf Wertheimer's photographs of the bustling public life in Stockholm, the vibrant 1960s at the Modern Museum and the audience's encounter with avant-garde art, the youth gangs on Kungsgatan and the inauguration of the modern Hötorgscity, as well as a series of Wertheimer's abstract paintings from early 1950s onwards. Wertheimer is one of the great Stockholm portrayers in Swedish photography. His interest in the camera as an artistic medium was sparked in 1956, when he discovered Henri Cartier-Bresson's book Images à la Sauvette. Inspired by the book's photographs of street life in Paris, Wertheimer himself has since the 1950s captured the zeitgeist with a keen eye and documented the city and its inhabitants.

Irving Penn
The artist's eye

30 october – 20 november 2021

Irving Penn (1917–2009) was one of the foremost photographers of the 20th century. Renowned for his powerful images and masterful developing techniques, Penn early developed a visual language where surface and form were tastefully accentuated in his photographs of both people and things. With a career that spanned six decades, Irving Penn is a central figure in the evolution of photography, and his iconic work has shaped the art and fashion worlds as well as generations of photographers. In the exhibition, supermodels in haute couture were displayed side-by-side portraits of both a crown prince and a member of the Hells Angels alongside still life images and Miles Davis' hands on the trumpet. All exhibited works came directly from the artist through The Irving Penn Foundation.

Autumn Show

2 – 16 october 2021

This year's Autumn Show at Åmells revolved around three key words: fairytale, dream and reality. These three words formed the innermost core of several of the exhibition's most important and significant works. The dream as a starting point for artistic creation was also evident in several of the exhibition's works by Hilding Linnqvist, Axel Nilsson, Olle Olsson Hagalund and Erik Olson. Among the artists who strove for a true-to-life art in the exhibition, as so often, Bruno Liljefors was in a class of his own. Three of the female artists of the late 19th century also made a big impression in this exhibition: Elisabeth Keyser, Charlotte Wahlström and Anna Palm. The Autumn Show also featured two of Carl Larsson's exquisite watercolours: Brita at the piano and Lilla Karin.

Jonas Nilsson
I lugna vatten

4 – 18 september 2021

In the exhibition I lugna vatten (In calm waters), snapshots that arise in the encounter with events in nature were shown. During Jonas Nilsson's walks in the woods and fields, he collects impressions and visual experiences that inspire him for the motifs in the nature depictions. In this exhibition, Nilsson's classic approach to nature painting was displayed. When Åmells introduced this virtuoso animal and nature painter to the art public in 2018, it was a huge success and today, Nilsson is one of the foremost nature painters.

Our capital in
the arts
Anna Palm and others

14 – 27 august 2021

Our Capital in the Arts, Anna Palm and others depicted the story of Stockholm city's many faces. The exhibition showcased outstanding vistas and genre-like urban motifs, landscapes and buildings reproduced with great topographical accuracy, which gives them a special position as documents of the time. At the center were Anna Palm's (1859–1924) popular depictions of urban landscapes in watercolour painting, the technique she came to master so well that in 1889 she became the first female teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts. These paintings gave an insight into how the city and the people appeared through the ages and are united by an atmospheric scent of the times of the city life that once was.

SUMMER IN
THE ARCHIPELAGO
Roland Svensson and others

19 june – 9 july 2021

With this exhibition, Åmells highlighted how Swedish artists interpreted and portrayed Stockholm Archipelago from several different perspectives: that of the summer visitor, that of the nature lover and that of the inveterate fisherman. Paintings by our most famous painters of the archipelago were shown here, such as Roland Svensson, Axel Sjöberg and Artur Bianchini, whose core and colouristically refined paintings have their starting point in long-term stays on Möja, Långviksskär and Sandhamn, among others.

Robert Högfeldt
Drollerier

29 may – 18 june 2021

In this exhibition, a considerable number of Robert Högfeldt's (1894–1986) works were shown, where humour was a typical characteristic. Högfeldt used humor to reveal human flaws, but also to highlight the small joys in life. Robert Högfeldt's humor is astonishingly accurate, but usually quite inoffensive. Högfeldt respected tolerance, so even in the pictures where the "trolls" act less sympathetically, he has portrayed them with mild indulgence. "The human quality I value most is tolerance," he once wrote himself.

Spring Show

17 april - 14 may 2021

Åmell's annual Spring Show reflected the breadth of our Nordic art treasure. The exhibition's modern section was both colorful and energetic and represented several of our most prominent artists, for example Isaac Grünewald, Olle Olsson Hagalund, Ivan Ivarson and Hilding Linnqvist. In the exhibition's classic segment, Paul Fischer and crisp summer bouquets by Olle Hjortzberg were presented, among other things. Particularly outstanding was also one of Carl Larsson's most interesting child portraits from the Sundborn period.

Helmer Osslund
Seasonal Changes

13 february - 12 march 2021

In the exhibition Seasonal Changes we got to experience Helmer Osslund's (1866-1938) northern rambles over mountains, along river valleys, through rain and sunlight, from just before the turn of the 20th century until his death. Helmer Osslund was deeply interested in the subtle transitions in nature, the barely noticeable shifts in vegetation, atmosphere, temperature, and weather. 

In the realm of hoarfrost
Gustav Fjæstad and others

5 december 2020 - 22 january 2021

This year's winter exhibition had its' focus on the winter landscape, embedded in snow, ice and frosty cold. Gustav Fjæstad - the uncrowned master of hoarfrost, was the center of attention.

This years Autumn Exhibition presented artworks of exceptionally high quality from a time span which width is unusually large. The exhibition took off in the 1600s with a splendid still life of Ottmar Elliger. Two shining stars from our Nordic neighbouring countries are Wilhelm Hammershøi and Maria Wiik. For a long time Wiik was eclipsed by her friend Helene Schjerfbeck, but have in the later years gotten a well deserved revenge. Just look at her portrait of the girl Marietta, and you will understand why! Other artists presented in this years Autumn Exhibition were Ernst Josephson, August Strindberg, Carl Fredrik Hill, Carl Larsson and many more.

Jonas Nilsson

5 - 25 september 2020

The third time Åmells presented Jonas Nilsson the audience got to experience his characteristic bird portraits of smug tit birds and stoic owls, but also both majestic four-legged predators with watchful eyes and sheer butterflies captured in a fleeting dance. Jonas Nilsson really knows his models, one can tell from his titles of the paintings: the lively little Kingfisher is called the Fisherking, the quiet owl he calls the Majesty…

Archipelago Views

3 july - 28 august 2020

Archipelago Views - a trip between islets and rocks showcased artistic interpretations of Stockholm's archipelago seen from different perspectives.

It also included less known artworks, for example Fanny Brate’s adorable portrait of her daughter. This years’ Spring Exhibition also presented several interesting water colours. One that deserved extra attention was Carl Larsson’s School youth Chorus at Ladugårdsgärdet.

Gunnar Löberg

14 march - 3 april 2020

The art Gunnar Löberg has left behind can't be summarized in one genre, not even a personal one. It alternates between expressive, surrealistic and realistic.

ISAAC GRÜNEWALD

8 februari - 6 mars 2020

Hidden Treasures

5 June - 5 July 2019

Certain artworks have not been met with the appreciation, accolade or the level of fame for the artist that one might expect. Thus, there are hidden treasures to discover by many artists that might not be particularly well-known to a wider public but that are, indeed, works of very high quality.

Jonas Nilsson - The Moments That Disappeared

11 - 25 May 2019
