Duldig Studio Museum and Sculpture Garden

03 9885 3358

Inspiring creative journeys, Duldig Studio museum and sculpture garden is an historic house museum and gallery located in East Malvern.

View sculptures, paintings and decorative arts by notable sculptor Karl Duldig (1902-1986) and his wife Slawa Horowitz-Duldig - inventor of the foldable umbrella and artist in her own right. The collection is displayed in the Gallery and in the original rooms of the house, the artists' studio and sculpture garden to tell the story of the Duldig's creative lives in Vienna, Singapore and Melbourne.

Karl's original studio, with kiln, tools and work across all periods has been kept as it was left by the artist, and in the adjoining garden the bronze and terracotta sculptures also remain in situ. There are also fantastic documents and three original prototypes of the improved foldable umbrella for which Slawa was granted a patent in 1929 and was exhibited at the 1931 Vienna Spring Fair.
