Duldig Studio, a public house museum, art gallery and sculpture garden, is located in East Malvern, Melbourne. 

It is the former home and studio of internationally recognised sculptor Karl Duldig (1902 to 1986) and his wife, artist and inventor Slawa Duldig (née Horowitz) (1902 to 1975). In the artists’ charming former home, garden and studio, the sculptures, drawings, paintings and decorative arts tell the story of their creative lives in Vienna, Singapore and Melbourne.

The story of Karl and Slawa is one of survival and resilience. The collection illustrates pre-war European art and culture as well as celebrating the contribution refugees and migrants have made to Australia’s cultural, political and social development. A changing exhibition program in a dedicated gallery space and diverse cultural events and educational initiatives connect adults and children of all ages – inspiring creative journeys.

Permanent Collection

A rich collection of sculptures, paintings, drawings and decorative arts, authentically displayed in the original furnished rooms, encourage active visitor engagement with the real lives of the artists and their remarkable history. Sculptures carved in marble and wood, modelled in clay and cast in bronze, are displayed in the artists’ working studio, while the sculpture garden has been described as ‘an oasis of peace in East Malvern suburbia’, The prototypes of Slawa Horowitz’s invention of the foldable umbrella in 1929, supported by the original patent documents, exemplify the depth of pre-war objects and historic records held by the museum.
