A Carl Larsson Christmas!

Carl Larsson (1853 - 1919) is a revered Swedish artist whose exuberant family and Christmas images we've come to know and love. My only excuse for posting these paintings today is that they are so beautiful and emblematic of the season, I just wanted to share them with you. I own this book and it is truly a joyous exploration of a painter who celebrated family with, in my view, a particularly Swedish use of brilliant color and design.


  1. Thank-you Yvette
    I discovered Carl Larson in 1974 when I spent some months in your beautiful country.
    I have admired and loved him since then

  2. You're welcome, Florin. I'm so glad you enjoyed viewing my post. I am a big fan of Carl Larsson's work as well.
