Did you know that there were over fifty Nordic women studying to become artists in Paris in the 1880s? Amongst them was Karin Bergöö, later to be the famous wife of Sweden’s most popular artist Carl Larsson. Through his works, she became a celebrity and most people know that she stopped painting after they got married. But what was her career like before they met?
The family Association of Carl and Karin Larsson informs that with a loan from Swedbank we are able to keep the Carl and Karin Larsson home open. We are confident for the future and have started the hard work to find solutions to be able to secure the long term care of the estate. This is an important work preserving one of Sweden´s most cherished cultural heritages.
Carl Larssongården – from log cabin to multi-faceted work of art is written by Torsten Gunnarsson and Ulla Eliasson, former directors of collections at the National Museum and the Museum of Architecture in Stockholm respectively.
