Abstract [sv]

Millesgården på Lidingö norr om Stockholm är ett av Sveriges mest välkända konstnärshem. Här uppförde skulptören Carl Milles från 1908 en kombinerad ateljé och bostad med anslutande trädgård. Trots att Milles var en mycket produktiv och framgångsrik skulptör, finns det skäl att framhålla Millesgården som hans främsta konstnärliga arbete.

Millesgårdens tillkomst skildras här i nära anslutning till den samtida utvecklingen inom arkitektur och trädgårdskonst. Anläggningen fungerade inte bara som hem och ateljé, utan även som utställningsmiljö. Millesgården blev ett monument – en minnesgård – där Carl Milles ambitioner och höga anspråk på konstnärsrollen kom till uttryck.

Abstract [en]

North of Stockholm, on the island of Lidingö, the Swedish-American sculptor Carl Milles started in 1908 to build his well-known artist studio, combined with a garden, which is now called Millesgården. Although Milles was indeed both prolific and productive as a sculptor, his studio may may well be mentioned as the most distinguished result of his career.

In this book, the design and construction of the studio as well as the layout of the garden is described and analysed in connection with the contemporary development of architecture and gardening. Through recurrent renovations, the whole studio eventually turned into a monument – a garden of memory – and a true expression of Milles's ambitions as an artist.
