More information

Auktionens teckning förvärvades ursprungligen av en konstsamlare i Danmark.
Teckningen är med stor sannolikhet utförd i Carl Kylbergs kombinerade sommarhus och ateljé, "Kylbergshus", i Aalsgaarde.
Den danske samlaren förvärvade den nu aktuella teckningen direkt av konstnären, vid ett besök i ateljén. Samme samlare hyrde även Carl Kylbergs sommarhus i Aalsgaarde 1936-41, under de år som Carl Kylberg avstod att resa till Danmark bl.a på grund av pågående världskrig.

Moderna Museet i Stockholm äger flera av Carl Kylbergs självporträtt. Jämför auktionens teckning med Moderna Museets Självporträtt (NMHD 81/1972), samt även Självporträtt (NMH 832/1974). Den sistnämnda teckningen i Moderna Museets samling är en donation från H.M. Konung Gustav VI Adolf 1974.


Carl Kylberg, 1878-1952, is considered a seminal figure in the Swedish 1900-century art. He was a student at the architecture department at Berlin University and then a student of Carl Wilhelmson at Valand art school in Gothenburg.

Kylberg broke through late, made his debut as a painter in 1919 with the February group at Liljevalchs. He became known to a wider public by the age of 50, but continued to be controversial as an artist. He had a permanent artistic antagonist of Isaac Grünewald and the same year as the Nazis in Germany set up the decisive blow against Entartete Kunst and practically the whole of modernism, Swedish government stopped the purchase of the painting "Uppbrottet" of the National Museum in Stockholm.
