Swedish Artists | Sitemap

Swedish art refers to the visual arts produced in Sweden or by Swedish artists.
Sweden has existed as country for over 1,000 years, and for times before this, as well as many subsequent periods, Swedish art is usually considered as part of the wider Nordic art of Scandinavia.
It has, especially since about 1100, been strongly influenced by wider trends in European art.
After World War II, the influence of the United States strengthened substantially. Due to generous art subsidies, contemporary Swedish art has a big production per capita.
