Theodor « Teto » Ahrenberg (1912-1989) was one of the greatest post-War modern-art collectors. His collection of almost a thousand works by the greatest artists of the time - Matisse, Picasso, Chagall, Le Corbusier - and by the young generation - Tadeusz Kantor, Olle Baertling, Jean Tinguely - was arbitrarily seized and auctioned by the Swedish government in 1962, and the project of museum designed by Le Corbusier for the city of Stockholm abandoned.
However, he rebuilt a second collection, devoted to the avant-gardes with, among others, Christo, Lucio Fontana, Arman, Tinguely, Niki de Saint Phalle.
This well-documented book gathers the dispersed collection. It underlines Ahrenberg's closed ties with every artist of whose works he collected, and details the museum imagined by Le Corbusier.
