Anna Petrus

ANNA PETRUS (SWEDEN, B. 1886)

Anna Petrus was a Swedish sculptor, graphic artist, designer and dancer, born in 1886, in Uppsala, Sweden. She is remembered, in particular, for the pewter and cast iron works with the lion motif, which she designed in the mid-1920s for Svenskt Tenn, some of which are still produced today. Anna also contributed to the design of the Swedish pavilion for the “1925 Paris Exhibition”.
