The Art Library is one of Scandinavia’s largest specialist libraries on art and applied art. Reflecting the art collections and activities of Nationalmuseum and Moderna Museet, the material primarily covers the period from the Renaissance to the present day. A large part of the library’s collection comprises artist monographs, catalogues of art collections, and auction and exhibition catalogues.
Much of the collection is in storage, so access must be requested in advance.
