The Art

Anders Zorn • Carl Larsson

Anders Zorn

The image behind us in the poster is Anders Zorn's Midsommar. A wild dance at midsummer around the midsummer pole (seen in the distance). Without Anders we probably would have lost the cow horn. It was Anders who instigated the world famous Rikspelman (Player of the realm) trials. A yearly playing infront of a jury to try to gain the status of Rikspelman. The remit of which was to keep folk traditions alive for future generations.

Carl Larsson
The image below us in the post is by Carl Larsson, whos is probably one of the most iconic Swedish artists. His artwork is instantly recognisable. This painting is called Breakfast under the large Birch.
