On Skeppsholmen itself, Stockholm’s Moderna Muséet is one of the better modern art collections in Europe, with a comprehensive selection of work by some of the twentieth century’s leading artists divided into three periods: 1900–39, 1940–69 and 1970 to the present day. Take a look at Dali’s monumental Enigma of William Tell, showing the artist at his most conventionally unconventional, and Matisse’s striking Apollo. Look out also for Picasso’s Guitar Player and Spring, plus a whole host of Warhol, Lichtenstein, Kandinsky, Miró, Magritte and Rauschenberg.
