From the publisher:
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 Larsson’s family: his wife Karin and their eight children. The accompanying text provides a fascinating insight into Larsson family life, and Carl’s painting techniques. Today, over 60,000 tourists a year visit Sundborn to admire Larsson’s home and work.
