    Images and media

    Prince Eugen is caught in the middle of the creative process. On the canvas, the figure of a tree gives a glimpse of his work as a lyrical landscape painter. Oscar Björck has portrayed him in his artist’s role, far from his royal duties. Over the years, the prince established a central role in Swedish art, as a collector, cultural politician and patron.
