Swedens beloved artist Carl Larsson (1853–1919) suffered a childhood of poverty in Stockholm before his artistic talent provided a way out. As a teen he was accepted to the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts, and his studies there eventually landed him work as a commercial illustrator. He lived in Paris for several years before moving a short distance south to the artists colony of Grez-sur-Loing. There he met artist Karin Bergöö, who urged him to take up watercolor—the medium for which he would become best known. The two married and moved to rural Sundborn, Sweden, making their home in a riverside cottage called Lilla Hyttnäs.In Sundborn, Larsson found his artistic voice, documenting his home, family (complete with eight children), friends, and neighbors with obvious delight.
