    Description from Art Bulletin of Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, vol 16, 2009:
    The focus in Julia Peirone´s portrait of Martin Lönnebo is on reflection and introspection. This is not a bishop emeritus preaching from the pulpit of Linköping Cathedral but a philosopher sitting on a stone in the forest. The
    portrait reflects both the meditative vein in Lönnebo´s writing and also his
    interest in nature of human beings. [slut]
