Waldemarsudde is the former home of the art prince Eugene, brother of King Gustav V (1907-1950). Prince Eugene was a talented artist, but he also collected art from other famous artists, mostly from the Nordic countries. He was a good friend of both Anders Zorn and Carl Larsson, two of Sweden’s most international famous artists. His home and collections were donated to the government after his death in 1947 and has been open for visitors since 1948.
