Claes Mosers samling – av J.A.G Acke

Monday 25 September 2023 at 07:00 EDT

Claes Moser is today one of the country's most well-known art experts and dealers, but he took his very first step into the industry as a student - when he used his student loan to bid in an unsigned oil painting of a boy dressed as a pirate at Stockholms Auktionsverk. It not only meant the beginning of a new and highly unplanned career path, but a lifelong fascination for the renowned Swedish artist Johan Axel Gustaf Acke.

  • At that time, J.A.G. Acke was basically forgotten and I was lucky enough to be pretty much alone in being on the hunt for his work. But today he has regained his position and more besides, above all internationally, and that makes me very happy. He was a different kind of artist, innovative for his time and never became an old artist who only painted what was expected of him. I've had fun with him all these years, says Claes Moser, smiling.

On September 25, Claes Moser's unique collection will be sold at Stockholms Auktionsverk at Nybrogatan 32. The viewing takes place September 20-25.
