Hennes Art Company has been hired by the Granlund family to be the exclusive distributor of the remaining sculptures left in the artist's collection. There are very few sculptures left. In addition, it was the artist's wish that there would be no additional castings made from the molds posthumously. The photos below represent the pieces currently available. For more information, please contact Greg Hennes.


Best-known for his striking bronze sculptures, which merge the human and geometric forms, Paul T. Granlund began his studies as an artist at Gustavus College in St. Peter, Minnesota where he received his BA in 1952. He continued his studies at the University of Minnesota, then at Cranbrook Academy in Michigan, where he received his MFA in 1954. That year, he was also awarded a Fulbright Award to study in Florence, Italy. A Guggenheim award for 1957 and 1958 allowed him to study in Rome.

For much of his career, Granlund was based at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. He built his studio and foundry there, and worked with generations of students as the sculptor-in-residence from 1971-1996. Granlund was widely read and interested math, science, religion, linguistics, music, and sports, and his work reflected the connections he made between these diverse fields. Considering his interests, his studio was well-situated at Gustavus, a liberal-arts college with Swedish and Lutheran roots and a tradition of hosting an annual Nobel Conference.

Granlund exhibited widely in museums and galleries, with solo exhibitions at the Minneapolis Institute of Art ( 1959), the Walker Art Center (1956), the American Swedish Institute (1978 and 2003), and in college and university galleries through out the upper Midwest.

Today, Granlund’s sculptures are installed throughout the Midwest and beyond: on college campuses, outside churches and hospitals, in arboretums, and at airports. International travelers can view Granlund sculptures in Paris, Nagasaki, Hong Kong, Sweden and India.
