Carl Larsson

The bookmark with the illustration of Carl Larsson from Stockholm, Sweden.

Carl Larsson was born in Stockholm, on 28 May 1853. His family was very poor and Carl grew up in dismal circumstances. The only glimmer of hope was his strong artistic talent, which emerged early on in his life. After the Art Academy Carl worked at illustrating books, magazines and daily newspapers. Carl met Karin and married in 1883 and had eight children. Karin and the children quickly became Carl’s favourite models.
On this bookmark - his wife Karin and his daughter Kersti.
