Gray and color illustrated wraps with blue lettering on cover and spine, x, 242 pp., illustrations throughout, most in color. "Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the V&A, this is the first comprehensive book in English on the Swedish artists Carl and Karin Larsson, whose country home, meticulously recorded by Carl in a series of beautiful watercolors, established the modern Swedish style. The Larssons' idea on domestic decoration, with their revolutionary approach to light and color, blended Swedish folk elements with elements taken from the English Arts and Crafts Movement as well as Art Nouveau and Japonisme, to create a highly individual style which remains a potent inspiration to designers and homemakers today. Carl Larsson's most famous paintings are shown alongside new photographs of the Sundborn interiors." - from back of book.
