Carl & Karin Larsson and the Ikea effect Miss Ann Clements Tuesday 17 October 2017

Carl Larsson 1853-1919, Sweden’s best known artist, and his wife Karin, blended traditional, native design with the then unfashionable C18 Gustavian style and the newly emerging Arts & Crafts influences. Today it enjoys a new lease of life in the IKEA age.
