    Karin Larsson has her daughter Suzanne in her lap. They are sitting in Carl’s studio. Apart from his major commissions, practically all his works depict subjects that are close to him. Close, as in his family or his home, his friends or their children. Karin Larsson was also an artist, but her husband’s pictures rarely depict her in that capacity. Their home in Sundborn was largely her creation, but in the paintings of that place she is almost exclusively portrayed as a mother and a wife.
