Ásmundarsafn
Ásmundarsafn The Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum is dedicated to the works of sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982). Opened in 1983, the collection is housed in a unique building designed and constructed mostly by the artist himself from 1942-1950, drawing on architectural ideas from the Mediterranean, the domed buildings of the Middle East, and the pyramids of Egypt. The original building served Sveinsson as studio and home; behind it he built a crescent-shaped structure as a work- and exhibition space. Architect Mannfreð Vilhjálmsson designed the addition that now joins the crescent-shaped and original buildings. A sculpture garden surrounds the Museum, adorned with nearly thirty of the artist's sculptures. Ásmundur Sveinsson was a pioneer of sculpture in Iceland. He found his inspiration in the Icelandic landscape, literature, and people. The central features of the collection are massive, powerful and sometimes provocative works in praise of the Icelandic common people, folktales and nature.
