This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

"Carl Larsson was born the 28 May, 1853 at Stockholm, where he studied at the Academy of Arts from 1869 to 1876.  He meanwhile supported himself by illustration, went over to Paris in 1876, and in 1883 revealed his first independent artistic style in a series of bright and delicate watercolor.


As an illustrator, too, he shortly attained a much higher plane. Residing first at Gothenburg and then at Stockholm, he devoted himself to mural decoration, his most important work in this line being his six frescoes in the National Museum and his great ceiling-piece in the foyer of the Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm.


He is best known, however, by his watercolor, abounding with true Swedish feeling, love of home, and good humor. These pictures, executed with a consummate mastery of line, have, by their wide yet merited popularity, doubtless prevented the general public from fully realizing his greatness as a mural

painter.


Rarely has the sheer joy of esthetic creation so come to light as in Carl Larsson and his art. These emanations from a singularly rich personality have influenced and invigorated the entire nation. At Simdbom, near Falun, Carl Larsson has built for himself a home in every way worthy the artist, a home which he loves, and which it has been his delight to depict with inexhaustible charm and variety."
