Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to show how Furstenberg's gallery and collection were both a part of and product of what has been called the modern breakthrough in Swedish art. The analysis is based on the established narrative in art history literature, also known as the master narrative, and how Furstenberg's gallery and collection has represented this rendering. This study has a sociological perspective as a framework, but the focus of the analysis is the visual; from how the home environment portrayed a bourgeois subjectivity and identity to museum practitioners, and art exhibitions' exhibits and paintings' representations of the Furstenberg collection and their home.
