Royal Swedish Academy of Arts

The Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm

The Royal Swedish Academy of Arts (Swedish: Kungliga Akademien för de fria konsterna), founded in 1773 by King Gustav III, is one of the Royal Academies in Sweden. The Academy is an independent organization, which acts to promote painting, sculpting, building and the other visual arts.

The art school, once an integral part of the Academy, the Royal Institute of Art, was in 1978 broken out as an independent entity directly under the supervision of the Ministry of Education.
