Milles World Wide

Carl Milles (1875-1955), internationally famous sculptor, worked in Paris, Munich, Rome, Sweden and the USA.

Carl Milles became famous in the early 20th century for his bold sculptures and early experiments with fountains in Paris. After a period of dazzling success in Munich and Sweden, Carl and his wife Olga moved to Cranbrook, USA. Carl Milles worked from his studio in the USA for nearly two decades, creating many sculptures and obtaining numerous American commissions. In the early 1950s, the couple moved back to Sweden.

Carl Milles' last studio was in Rome, where he completed four monumental sculptures.
