The National Portrait Gallery (Swedish: Statens porträttsamling) at the Gripsholm Castle in Mariefred is a collection of portraits of prominent Swedes. Officially founded in 1822 with over 4000 works that trace the portrait art changes from the 1500s to the present.

“It’s such an honor to be shown there — the highlight of my career,” Hodgson said.
