The real attraction for me was the gallery's collection of Nordic painters. Goteborgs konstmuseum has possibly the best collection of Nordic painters in the whole of Sweden.

At the Göteborg Art Museum you could really feel the art from different centuries communicate with eachother. Great work of mixing old and new pieces from the collection and giving the exhibition such an interesting twist!

Visiting the Gothenburg Museum of Art was one of the highlights of my stay in the city.
Visitor From TripAdvidsor
I took a walk through Gothenburg and discovered the museum of art. At the end my visit took 2 hours longer than I planned to spend in the city, because I really enjoyed exploring all the artworks and the temporary exhibition in this nice building. As a student the entry was free! :-)

The museum houses art (mainly paintings) from the last 500 years or so. We were pleased to see such a wide-range of artists' work displayed - both those from Scandinavia but also those more well-known to us such as Picasso, Munch, Van Gogh, Kandinsky and Monet.

In connection to the ongoing exhibition Młoda Polska: Polish Fin de Siècle Art, the Gothenburg Museum of Art invites to a unique lecture with Ph.D. Piotr Rypson, former Acting Director at the National Museum in Warsaw and one of the leading experts on Modernism in Poland. The lecture deals with the artistic climate following the Młoda Polska period.
In his lecture, Piotr Rypson will present his work with the much talked about exhibition Shouting: Poland! Independence 1918, on display at the National Museum in Warsaw until March 17. The exhibition celebrates the centennial jubilee of the independence of Poland with and in-depth investigation into the Polish avant-garde between the wars.
The exhibition Shouting: Poland! Independence 1918, has gained a lot of appraisal and media attention, and deals with the artistic climate following the Młoda Polska period. The exhibition, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the independence of Poland, focused – perhaps for the first time – on art resulting from the tragic experiences of World War I and civilian tragedy.
The connection between war and art is explored in the show, as well as the relation between gaining independence by the Polish state in 1918 and the explosion of new and avant-garde art and movements. The exhibition, consisting mainly of historic artworks created between 1900 and 1930, addresses also the present political climate through artistic interventions by Piotr Uklanski and Przemek Trust Truscinski.
The lecture is presented in English and is included in the entrance fee.
There´s a limited number of seats, and you can get a reservation-ticket at the reception from Thursday 10 January.
