► This volume describes Lars Swanljung’s odyssey as an art collector. Swanljung has created a major art collection, which includes American graphic works, Icelandic contemporary art and artworks by Finns such as Kari Cavén and Carolus Enckell. Swanljung talks about his collector’s temperament, which is marked by systematicness, trust in his feelings, and an unbridled desire for possession. But is he ever struck by doubts that he has made a major blunder? Lars Swanljung has donated his collection to the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art in his home city of Vaasa.
