Gustaf Vasa Kyrka, 21x30cm Stockholm Print Limited Edition, Sweden

kr990,00

Gustaf Vasa Church is a church located in the Vasastaden district of Stockholm, Sweden. Inaugurated in 1906 and named after 16th-century King Gustav Vasa, it was designed by architect Agi Lindegren in the Baroque Revival style.

Description

This is a print of a very detailed landscape of Stockholm. I did a line drawing, then I did the watercolor, scanned it, and have it printed on high-quality Canon Inkjet Matte Photo Paper 170g/m2. There is only a few left of these signed and numbered artworks available, so do not hesitate to order.

The 15 metres (49 ft) high altarpiece was designed and built by Burchard Precht in his workshop between 1728 and 1731. It is Sweden’s largest sculptural work in the Baroque style, originally created for the Uppsala Cathedral. Stored away at the Skansen museum for several years, it finally ended up at the Gustaf Vasa Church in 1906.

The interior of the dome was painted by Viktor Andren, and features an interpretation of the Transfiguration of Jesus. The church also has several other frescoes done by the same artist, depicting the Four Evangelists, the Baptism, the Last Supper, the Gospel and the Decalogue.

The church organ was built to the wishes of composer Otto Olsson, who was also the church organist 1907–1956. The organ has 76 voices spread over three manuals and pedals. The crypt beneath the church was originally used as a burial chapel, and was expanded in 1924 with what is most likely Sweden’s first columbarium.
