Carl Larsson (1853 - 1919) was a Swedish painter representative of the Arts and Crafts Movement. His many paintings include oils, watercolors, and frescoes. He considered his finest work to be Midvinterblot (Midwinter Sacrifice), a large painting now displayed inside the Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts. In 1882, he met fellow Swedish artist, Karin Bergöö, who soon became his wife. Her father gave them what became their family home, an old foundry at Sundborn, at Darlana, Sweden. They called it "Little Hyttnäs". Carl and Karin Larsson had eight children (Suzanne (1884), Ulf (1887, who died at 18), Pontus (1888), Lisbeth (1891), Brita (1893), Mats (1894, who died at 2 months), Kersti (1896) and Esbjörn (1900)) and his family became Larsson's favorite models. Many of the interiors depicted were the work of Karin Larsson, who also worked as an interior designer. Through his paintings and books, Little Hyttnäs has become one of the most famous artist's homes in the world, transmitting the artistic taste of its creators and making it a major line in Swedish interior design. The descendants of Carl and Karin Larsson now own this house and keep it open for tourists each summer. This book includes a selection of his work mostly the "Little Hyttnäs" paintings.
