Anders Knutsson at the Moderna Museet

Moderna Museet in Stockholm have agreed to purchase the painting ‘Light Green Spring’ 2013 by Anders Knutsson.

This large monochrome painting was shown by Knight Webb Gallery at Context Art Fair New York in May this year (see image below). The same work was also shown at The Agueli Museum in Sweden throughout August.

In addition to ‘Light Green Spring’ the collection at the Moderna Museet includes Knutsson’s ‘Long Red Painting’, from 1979 and ‘Midnight Earthshine #16’ 1979. This gives the artist a substantial presence in the permanent collection of Sweden’s most prestigious museum of art.
