The Large Studio

Together with his assistants Milles worked in this spacious studio during the 1910s and the 1920s. His first important commission was the Sten Sture monument outside Uppsala, and through the years this is where he created well-known projects as Poseidon for Gothenburg and Europa and the Bull for Halmstad, amongst others. 

The plaster casts shown cover both Milles preliminary sketch (1926) and the final version (1936) of his Orpheus figure for Stockholms Concert Hall. A nymph from his American work, Man and Nature (1938) from the Time-Life building in Rockefeller Center, New York is also on view. Milles' lifework is further documented here through a selection of the artist's plaster models and photos of Carl Milles att work.
