Home: Through the Paintings of Carl Larsson
Author: Carl Larsson
Publisher: Laughing Elephant
Release Date: June 01, 2006
Beloved Swedish artists Carl and Karin Larsson made their home a living testament to their aesthetics. They designed, built and decorated the furniture, wove and embroidered all the textiles, and painted the walls of the lovely cottage where they and their children lived in great happiness. The Larssons inspired a uniquely Scandinavian design style that was, and is, hugely influential. Carl's paintings captured the beauty and happiness of their home, and these illustrate this volume. Welleran Poltarnees' text considers the truths of home and family, and the resultant book is a loving testimony to the transformative powers of art and love.
