Art Library

The Art Library is a shared resource for Nationalmuseum and Moderna Museet.

Due to extensive renovation of the Art Library is CLOSED and will re-open in the autumn of 2014. 

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.

Two libraries become one

On 1 July 2013, the Photography Library at Moderna Museet and the Art Library at Nationalmuseum merged to create a single specialist library for art, photography and design. Read more.
