The focus of my project is the Nationalmuseum during the time period 1885-1920. Sociologists such as Pierre Bourdieu, Erik Olin Wright and Göran Therborn contributed to the theoretical framework of the first part of the dissertation in which social structure indicators were used to clarify who participated in the museum procurement board´s decisions surrounding the purchase of oil paintings. The annual acquisitions were made amongst works of art created by then living Swedish artists.

The final part of the dissertation is focused on artists and paintings chosen by the procurement board; a process influenced by social structures and conflicts within Swedish society as well as the art field during this time period.
