STOCKHOLM, Nov. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Sweden is a well-kept secret among art
lovers and art collectors. Not only is Sweden the home of tremendously
successful painters such as Jockum Nordström and Karin Mamma Andersson,
but many sellers have found that Bukowskis is also a great marketplace
for Andy Warhol, Antony Gormley, Irving Penn and Richard Avedon.
