Paintings of prince Eugen are displayed at "Arcadia – A Paradise Lost", on display on the upper floor of Nationalmuseum from 17 September until 17 January 2021"

This autumn's exhibition at Nationalmuseum opens on 17 September and features French and Italian art from primarily the 17th century but also French and Nordic art until the turn of the 20th century. The exhibition shows how people's view of nature has changed through the ages and also addresses the many classical stories conveyed in the paintings. Artists on display include Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin and Salvator Rosa and, from more contemporary times, Prince Eugen, Anna Boberg and Otto Hesselbom.
The more idea-based discussions surrounding the human image of nature are deepened in a few smaller rooms in the exhibition by a collaboration with Färgfabriken. At this point the exhibition leaves Arcadia to explore the industrialised society’s relationship with nature on the theme of hinterland. A number of pieces from Nationalmuseum’s collections by artists such as Prince Eugen, Axel Sjöberg and Anna Boberg are discussed and displayed based on contemporary discussions on natural resources, urbanisation and climate issues.

Video of the funeral of prince Eugen. His ashes were buried on his Waldemarsudde.

Interesting that his funeral took place at the Chapel at Skogskyrkogården Cemetry, and not at Storkyrkan Cathedral or the Chapel at the Royal Palace. He had indeed a strong and interesting personality.

Prince Eugen was the first Swedish royal to be cremated, and cremations were done at Skogskyrkogården, so that could be a reason. One other reason could be that he liked the place, he had been there in the inauguration of the Skogskrematoriet, and it's a lovely place when it comes to architecture, and decorations in and out, done by artists he knew, so my guess is that it was a place that was meaningful to him.
There's a photo of prince Eugen and the future king Gustaf (VI) Adolf at the inauguration here: https://sv.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skogskrematoriet
