One of Eldh’s major public works is the grand statue of Strindberg in Stockholm, which was first executed in plaster around 1930 and completed in 1952.
Tegnérlunden is a Stockholm park at the border of districts Norrmalm and Vasastaden. It was originally erected 1890, but was re-constructed in 1940. On a hill in the parks's eastern part stands Carl Eldh's massive statue of August Strindberg.
