Hjalmar Gabrielson’s Portrait Collection – Göteborgs konstmuseum

In the Self-Portrait’s Soul-Searching Gaze, We Come Close to the Artist

Hjalmar Gabrielson’s collection of self-portraits is a unique collection that features several of the most prominent Swedish Modernist artists, such as Ivar Arosenius, Isaac Grünewald, Carl Kylberg, and Inge Schiöler. The collection provides a broad overview of Swedish art during the first half of the 20th century, and includes finely-tuned works by less well-known artists such as Karl Andersson and Sten Teodorsson. Several international artists are also represented, such as Käthe Kollwitz and Kurt Schwitters.

Hjalmar Gabrielson (1876–1949) was a Swedish art collector who was oriented towards international Modernism. Gabrielson was in close contact with many of the artists and several of the self-portraits were commissioned by the collector. After his death, Gabrielson’s daughters donated the collection, comprising 64 works, to the Gothenburg Museum of Art.
