Einar Jónsson Museum


by Atlantios

"Iceland's First Sculptor"

Sculptor Einar Jónsson (1874-1954) has recently become fashionable again. This after a period of a certain embarrassment surrounding his work, which is highly symbolic and heroic in style and content, perusing themes from the Norse and Greek Mythology, Icelandic Sagas and folktales and Icelandic nature. This museum is almost like a sculpture itself, designed by the artist himself, in collaboration with architect Einar Erlendsson. It is unique and unlike any in Iceland and was built for the artist as his home, studio and gallery, when he had donated his works to the nation. The house has recently been restored, and in addition to the art collection the artist's tiny flat on the top floor is now open to public.
