In 1909, just a few hours before midnight on New Years Day, the Swedish artist Ivar Arosenius died after a long battle against haemophilia. Today, nothing remains of the small homestead in Älvängen, north of Gothenburg, which during the last few years of the painter’s life had been both backdrop to and inspiration for his art.

The Arosenius project is funded by The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, and The Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities. It involves a number of departments and divisions at the University of Gothenburg as well as the National Museum in Stockholm, and the Museum of Art in Gothenburg. The project develops a digital archive that collects the digitised material from several sources – both public and private – into a central repository, allowing scholars and the public to explore, activate and connect with this rich material in new ways.
