de Vries Day

Take the chance to see the world’s largest collection of Adriaen de Vries sculptures. The museum at Drottningholm has on display a unique collection of sculptures by the Dutch sculptor de Vries.

The collection of sculptures from Adriaen de Vries (1556–1626) can be seen at the old Dragoon Stables from the 1700s at Drottningholm.

The bronze sculptures, dating back to the beginning of the 1600s, were brought to Sweden as booty and were eventually placed in the Drottningholm Palace park.

Today these sculptures have been replaced by modern bronze casts and the originals can be seen at the Museum De Vries. The museum contains the world's largest collection of Adriaen De Vries' work.
