Carl Larsson (Swedish, 1853–1919)
By the Cellar

Born into poverty, Carl Larsson (Swedish, 1853–1919) earned a scholarship at Stockholm’s academy of fine arts and supported himself in commercial illustration. His career in fine art, where his ambitions tended toward the monumental and allegorical, was lackluster, but this changed when he met his future wife, artist Karin Bergöö. Under her influence he began to produce light, bright watercolors, modest in scale and subject.

Bergöö’s father gave the newlyweds a cottage, which they proceeded to embellish, expand, and fill with children. The Larssons lavished energy on decorating their house—and in Carl’s case, on rendering it and its inhabitants in loving, lighthearted paintings. Having found the happy home denied him as a child, Larsson became the paramount chronicler of domestic bliss.
