Summary

When his own sons and daughters had grown up, Carl Larsson used the children of his neighbours at Sundborn as his models. The children in this picture are from the Nordlund family. Seven-year-old Sven is standing on the roof of the family earth cellar. His older sister Edit is carrying Karin, and in the foreground is Frida with a little basket. Carl Larsson’s late watercolours have the same linear style as those from around 1900, but the colours are often paler. Svenska: När de egna sönerna och döttrarna hade vuxit upp anlitade Carl Larsson sina Sundborn-grannars barn som modeller. Här är det barnen Nordlund som avbildas. Sju år gamle Sven står på taket till familjens jordkällare. Storasyster Edit har Karin i famnen, och i förgrunden står Frida med en liten korg. De sena akvarellerna är utförda i samma linjestil som de från åren kring 1900, men färgskalan är ofta blekare.

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.
