Cow Parade Stockholm2000


Cow Map(pdf)

CowParade artists range from acclaimed to amateur, young to old. Diversity in art is ensured by the approach that CowParade takes when soliciting artists and reviewing designs.

Rolf Güntert
When Rolf Güntert graduated from the Basel Art School, there were cows grazing nearby. He moved permanently to Sweden in 1967 and on vacation in Switzerland in 1998, he landed right in the middle of the huge cow parade in Zürich. A herd of 800 artist-designed cows had invaded the town. Wherever Rolf Güntert looked, there was a cow looking him right in the eye. Upon his return to Stockholm, he received a commission from De Laval's Agrimuseum in Hamra Gċrd. His mural shows cows in a Swedish pastoral landscape from the 19th century. And nearby there is a real cow, a sculpture and a milkmaid sitting on a stool. Rolf Güntert lost no time submitting a sketch to Stockholm's CowParade, which was readily accepted. Kindergartens in the area were welcome visitors to his gallery, watching him create a detailed representation of Stockholm, crowned with the Three Crowns. According to Rolf Güntert himself, this work is a loving tribute to a town that he has learnt to love and live in.
