The Swedish Prince Eugen (1865-1947) was not only a royal prince and a culturally involved artist and patron of the arts but also an art collector. His art collecting has mostly been considered a matter of course and has not yet been discussed thoroughly. Stereotypes of the Prince as an art collector have flourished and disseminated. Eugen has been looked upon as a patron of the arts who mainly supported his artist friends and less fortunate younger artists in need of financial support. The abundant art collection at the museum Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde, left by bequest to the Swedish government and today state-owned, supports the theory of a different force behind the prince´s art acquisition. In this study art collecting is examined in terms of social promotion. The main focus is put on Prince Eugen and some of his roles on the domestic art scene and in particular Eugen, the art collector.
