Description

Carl Larsson is one of Sweden's best-loved artists. His stunning watercolours of his home and family from the end of the nineteenth century are acclaimed as one of the richest records of life at that time. The paintings in this book all depict the farm of Spadarvet in Sundborn, in west Sweden, which Carl Larsson bought in 1897. The accompanying text provides a fascinating insight into farm life, and into Carl's painting techniques. Today, over 60,000 tourists a year visit Sundborn to admire Larsson's home and work.

Author Biography

Carl Larsson (1853-1919) was born into a poor family in Stockholm, Sweden. He was accepted to the Stockholm Academy of Fine Arts at the age of thirteen and spent several years working as a newspaper and magazine illustrator. He moved to Paris, where, as a penniless artist, he met his wife Karin, also an artist. In 1888 they moved back to Sundborn in Sweden. Carl Larsson is best known for his lovely watercolour paintings of his home and family which were popularised through a series of books.
