Nationalmuseum Sweden acquires sculpted portrait by Ida Matton

Nationalmuseum has acquired a sculpted portrait in terracotta created in 1895 by Ida Matton. The bust depicts a young woman wearing a dress typical of the period, with a high collar and puff sleeves.

The work shows elements of both expressive naturalism and illusionism, reflecting trends in French sculpture at the time.
