Reykjavik Art Museum – Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum

SCULPTURE
Ásmundarsafn (Sigtún) is the former home and workshop of the sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982), who designed and mostly constructed the building himself. The museum serves to honor his life and work, and displays the largest collection of his sculptures both inside and outside the building. Ásmundur´s art greatly reflects his lifelong interest in the Icelandic sagas, folk tales and classical mythology. The building itself is a magnificent work of architecture, largely inspired by the Egyptian pyramids and the mosques of the Middle East. Ásmundarsafn also houses temporary exhibitions and installations.
