Transform the mood and personality of your space with this print from the Swedish artist Carl Larsson.
Carl Larsson (1853 ?1919) was a Swedish painter, representative of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Larsson moved to Paris in 1877, where he spent several frustrating years as a hardworking artist without any success. Along with other Swedish artists, he distanced himself from the radical movement of French Impressionism and settled with other Swedish painters at a Scandinavian artists? colony outside Paris.
It was there that he met the talented artist Karin Bergoo, who soon became his wife. This became a turning point in his career. Carl and Karin had eight children and their family became his favourite models.
Larsson wrote in his memoirs that the pictures of his family and home "became the most immediate and lasting part of my life's work. For these pictures are of course a very genuine expression of my personality, of my deepest feelings, of all my limitless love for my wife and children."
This 1892 work features Evening Lights at the Piano. The print is from a 1960's German art book.
The paper measures 8 x 10 inches with a print area of 5.75 x 9 inches. The reverse side has text which does not show through. The paper is in excellent condition.
Your print will be mailed in a non-bendable mailer carefully housed in an acid-free archival sleeve.

Maria Sibylla Merian ( 1647 ? 1717) was a naturalist and scientific illustrator who studied plants and insects . She published three collections of engravings of plants in 1675, 1677 and 1680.
Merian received her artistic training from her stepfather, Jacob Marrel, a student of the still life painter Georg Flegel. She published her first book of natural illustrations, titled Neues Blumenbuch, in 1675 at age 28. In 1699, following eight years of painting and studying Merian was awarded a grant by the city of Amsterdam to travel to Surinam with her daughter Dorothea. After two years there, she was forced return to Europe as result of malaria. She then proceeded to publish her major work, Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium in 1705, for which she became famous. Because of her careful observations and documentation of the metamorphosis of the butterfly, she is considered among the most significant contributors to the field of entomology.
This 1705 poster was reprinted in 2008 and printed on premium grade poster paper. The paper measures 8.25 x 11.25 and is in excellent condition. There's text on the reverse side that does not show through. Perfect to frame, for scrap-booking or for your art.

This shipbuilding chart printed in 1907 features the Caronia, Carmania, Oceanic steamships and the Kashima Japanese battleship.
The Caronia would be some 240 miles away from the Titanic when it received the message that the Titanic had struck an iceberg. The ship would be converted into an armed merchant cruiser during the First World War and post-war refitted to carry passengers between London and Halifax. In the 1930s, the lovely Caronia was scrapped by a Japanese firm.
The Carmania was the sister ship to the Caronia and was the fastest ship of its time. Like the Caronia it was commissioned for war duty and eventually scrapped.
The Oceanic was completed in 1899 and until 1901 was the largest ship in the world. The ship was to become known as the Queen of the Ocean. In 1912 after the departure of the Titanic it became involved in the near collision of the Titanic with the SS New York, due to the large wake caused by the Titanic?s size and speed. It eventually sank during wartime duties having run aground on the notorious Shaalds of Foula Reef.
The Kashima was a Katori class pre-dreadnought battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy, designed as a response to the potential threats from China, Russia and the United States. It was eventually de-commissioned in 1923.
The paper, printed in 1907, measures 6 x 9 inches and is in superlative condition. There's text on the reverse side which does not show through.
This wonderful historical image will be mailed to you by First Class Mail carefully housed in an acid-free archival sleeve.
