www.wherejacwanders.com – We loved the statues around the garden at Millesgården and were also delighted to venture inside and see more of the Milles art work and statues.
It was in 1906 the sculptor Carl Milles bought a plot of land on the island of Lidingö, and in 1908 he had a house and a studio built here. Carl and Olga remained in this lovely home until 1931. A magnificent donation by Carl and Olga Milles established, in 1936, the Carl and Olga Milles Lidingöhem Foundation. Millesgården was first opened for the general public in the closing years of the 1930s.
I particularly enjoyed seeing the lower terrace with Anne’s house designed by Evert Milles and furnitured by founder of furniture copmany Svenskt Tenn, Estrid Ericsson.
We finished our visit to Millesgården with a fika stop. Coffee and cinnamon bun after an afternoon of art was just right.
