A Farm

Paintings from a Bygone Age

Carl Larsson



Carl Larsson’s books about the life on his farm, Spardarvet in western Sweden, were some of the most sparkling jewels on our bookshelf during the time when our children were growing up. They are so filled with life and beauty, and the portrayals of family and farm life in those days are so wonderful that we spend hours and hours just pouring over them, talking about what the people were doing, what certain things in the room were, thinking about family and home and life.

I can’t recommend these highly enough – they are the sort of books that are pulled from the shelf time and time again, to be looked at anew by everyone, regardless of age.
