MillesgårdenDuring the first half of the 20th century, the iconic Swedish sculptor Carl Milles (1875-1955) nabbed many coveted public commissions all over the world.
He was known for his style of blending Ancient Greek, Roman, and Christian mythology into his work. He used heavy, hard materials such as granite and bronze, and he paired the sculptures with light materials such as water and air by making them the centerpieces of fountains or raising them high up in the sky.
Carl Milles died in 1955, and his greatest creation is said to be Millesgården, which he worked on over the span of 50 years.
