Artworks I'd Steal: Carl Larsson

Photobucket

I came across this one in a book full of self-portraits by different artists and it made me laugh out loud. The look on the face of the clown is priceless, but the deadpan expression of Larsson makes it even better.
Larsson and his wife are pretty much the designers of what we now consider the Swedish look when it comes to interior design. He painted countless watercolour pictures of his family and home, although he himself considered his frescos more important.
Here's the website of the Carl Larsson Museum, situated at Lilla Hyttnäs, Carl and Karin Larsson's house.
