The Artist's Wife

This watercolour shows one of Carl and Karin Larsson’s daughters writing, but it also has the character of a reportage illustration. It gives a straight-forward account of the interior, not unlike the photos found in today’s home decorating magazines. The green plant stand made according to Karin Larsson’s drawings is a fine example of her design, which strove to combine aesthetic quality with simplicity and function.
