80 years ago, Ragnar Josephson Professor of Art History at Lund University, started the Archives for Decorative Art, which was later named Skissernas Museum. We are celebrating this by an open invitation to an afternoon filled with dialogue, music, and performance around creativity, process and art within the public space. On the first floor, the Museum´s activities over the years will be presented by an exhibition, on how the archives and collections have expanded and developed through the years. Furthermore, catalogues, books, posters and postcards will be sold at special jubilee rates!
15.30 – 17.00

The Museum of Sketches was founded in 1934 by Ragnar Josephson (1891-1966), during his time as Professor of Art History at the University of Lund (Sweden). The intention was to establish an archive of the creative process, or the path of the artist from the first idea to the finished work. The aim was to collect sketches, models and photographs to Public Art – as the study material relating to it was especially suited, by the frequent demand on abundant preliminary sketches.
