GUSTAV VASA – The Image of a King
28th of November, 2020 – 7th of March, 2021
In 2020, it will be exactly 500 years since Gustav Erikson (Vasa) spoke to the people of Mora. His mythical adventures in Dalarna have inspired many artists, including Zorn. Starting during childhood, Zorn held great admiration for the old king and even sculpted his statue in Mora. This exhibition is dedicated to how Gustav Vasa has been portrayed in pictures over the centuries, from pure fantasies, to works of art with national significance.
