Asmund Arle – the Giacometti of Scandinavia E200

Asmund Arle’s world of motifs picturing infants, kittens, pigs, birds, calves and horses are not majestic nor classic sculptures – instead they are tender portraits of life when it is as the most vulnerable and exposed, and in the same time when life is as most viable. Asmund lived several years in France during the 1950s and then came in contact with sculptures by August Rodin as well as Alberto Giacometti. It is obvious that Arle has taken inspiration from the loneliness and the enteral quest as seen in Giacometti’s art, into his own personal work. Asmund Arle’s artistic takes of animals and humans in bronze and terra-cotta counts for the best ones ever made in Swedish art history.
