Carl Larsson: At Home Boxed Notecards

$16.95

Carl Larsson (Swedish, 1853–1919) was born into poverty in Stockholm but overcame his dismal childhood through art and the love for his wife, artist Karin Bergöö. The two met in 1882 at an artist’s colony near Paris, where Bergöö encouraged Larsson’s transition from the large-scale allegorical oil paintings he was then creating, to the light-infused watercolors, modest in scale and subject, for which he is now famous. In a cottage named Little Hyttnäs in the rural village of Sundborn, Sweden, their family expanded and the couple lavished attention on their eight children, as well as on remodeling and decorating their home. As shown by the four images represented here, Carl Larsson delighted in rendering the cottage as a charming setting of the family’s domestic bliss and idyllic country life.

Carl Larsson

Born into poverty, Carl Larsson (Swedish, 1853–1919) earned a scholarship to study art and succeeded in supporting himself as an illustrator of books and periodicals. He lived in Paris for several years before meeting artist Karin Bergöö, who encouraged his transition from large-scale allegorical oil paintings to light-infused watercolors—the medium for which Larsson is best known. The two married and moved into a cozy cottage in rural Sundborn, Sweden, where they raised their eight children. In Sundborn, he found his artistic voice, documenting his home, family, friends, and neighbors in charming detail. Larsson—whose style was a unique amalgam of Swedish folk traditions, English Arts and Crafts design ideas, and Art Nouveau with Japanese influences—is still revered as Sweden’s best-loved artist.
