Carl Larsson, Swedish painter

I discovered this girl, reading on a bench with her cat and her dog, something like 30 years ago. I remember I took a picture… But what? No Internet at this time. I was let alone with a name. I forgot the name but not this watercolor masterpiece.

This week I found another picture, a red apron, and my instinct clicked : it’s the guy who painted the girl on the bench. I checked on Pinterest and found it quickly.

Carl Larsson (1853-1919).

Yes it’s an “academic pleasure”, like Rockwell or Hopper. When Christmas comes closer, it’s a good thing!

Have a nice Swedish day!

Anders Zorn, Swedish Painter

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anders_Zorn

Anders Zorn was a Swedish painter (1860-1920), a star in his country but I’m not sure he’s well known elsewhere. He knows his art, and when he paints water you can almost hear the sound of lapping…

There’s talent, and freedom, and he knows what a portrait is. Bravo!

Thanks for reading!

Simon Stålenhag, Swedish Digital Painter

Digital Artist? Designer? Painter? I don’t know. He has a universe (countryside, dying machines, toys, megastructures), but he has “this” sense of light, mood and weather that I love.
