Olle Emanuelsson Collection H063

Bukowskis presents Olle Emanuelsson Collection consisting of art and design from early 1900s until today. The substantial collection has taken form with great knowledge and passion for art during a long period of time and includes Swedish and international art by artists such as Olle Bærtling, Jean Tinguely, Henri Laurens, Lynn Chadwick, Bjarne Melgaard and many more.


Emanuelsson, as portrayed by artists Peter Frie and Britt Arnstedt
Olle – a man, a father and a friend with a big heart and with eyes longing for all things beautiful. As a true ’smålänning’, he was careful with the finances except when it came to art – as long as there was no tipping involved. ‘Nix drix’ (‘no tips’) was his motto.
If there were an exhibition opening, Olle would be visiting, had he the chance. The auction house showings were also carefully searched in the hunt for something interesting to add to the ever-growing collection. Olle was a real aesthete, with a love of surrounding himself with beautiful and meaningful objects. Visiting any of his homes in Stockholm, Mallorca or even as far away as in Thailand, you would always get a chance to see some meticulously chosen art or objects, proudly displayed by Olle. His apartment in Stockholm was cluttered with artwork, most of them of a moderate format, so that he could pleasantly surround himself with them every day. No wall or section of the floor should be devoid of a distinguishing piece of art.
Recent times
As time passed, our friendship developed and we spent much time together in Asia, among other places, where we, Britt, Olle and me, came to be something like a little family far away from Sweden. Olle would always call in the morning – keeping in touch – wanting to meet and make up a plan for the day. He preferred not to be alone. When we could, we would have dinner together at night and then watch a film in our home. Olle was a pleasant guest and would keep us in a good mood with his big smile, hearty laugh and tongue-in-cheek humor. We had many long walks along the beach. Sometimes we would have lunch at some beach club, or down at the little fish restaurant in the village or on the beach.
Olle loved the sun! Really loved it. He could sunbathe for hours, perhaps reading a book. But preferably he wanted to be in company – because if anything he liked conversing, about old memories from when Småland was the base of operations and the whole rest of Sweden was his office. He knew much about beautiful and delicate cloth; he was a master of textiles and he always dressed snappy. As mentioned, Olle created a personal home wherever in the world he was, and this was also the case in Thailand. Here, dazzling furniture in bright colours could be seen next to interesting photos and oil paintings on the walls. Sometimes he would arrange a dinner, where we would sit around the long table together. Usually, we would be treated to his special: oven roasted salmon. Olle ate almost exclusively fish the last few years. He would always follow the news about what was happening in the world. For Olle, it was important to keep up with the state of the world, sports and finance. Every day his children called from Sweden to check that everything was fine. He was so thankful for this. The family meant a lot to him.
Olle never gave up. He travelled despite poor health in old age, fighting, but always with a smile until the end.
