Events

Events of interest to our members form an important part of
the Anglo-Swedish Society’s agenda. Some 12-15 are organized
every year and highlighted in our newsletters, produced three
times yearly. Although there is often an obvious Swedish
connection, we take the view that members meeting up and
getting to know each other is the key factor in these popular
get-togethers. The events are often combined with a lunch,
dinner or evening drinks.

  • COMING UP

    Helene Schjerfbeck private tour

     

    Finnish national icon, Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946) is presented for the first time to UK audiences.

    “Through over 60 portraits, landscapes and still lifes, this long-overdue survey traces the evolution of her remarkable career. Among the highlights will be a sequence of self-portraits, which demonstrate Schjerfbeck’s lifelong fascination with the physical and psychological process of ageing. In the age of the selfie, her engagement with masks and masquerade – the superficial appearance we present to the world and what lies beneath – is more relevant than ever.”

    Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and the Ateneum Art Museum / Finnish National Gallery, Helsinki.

    Members are invited to a private guided tour followed by informal Coffee after the exhibition.
