About the Author:

Carl Larsson (1853-1919) was born into a poor family in Stockholm, Sweden. He was accepted to the Stockholm Academy of Fine Arts at the age of thirteen and spent several years working as a newspaper and magazine illustrator.

Carl Larsson is best known for his lovely watercolour paintings of his home and family which were popularised through a series of books.
