Sweden's beloved artist Carl Larsson (1853-1919) suffered a childhood of poverty in Stockholm before his artistic talent provided a way out. As a teen he was accepted to the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts, and his studies there eventually landed him work as a commercial illustrator. He lived in Paris for several years before moving a short distance south to the artist colony of Grez-sur-Loing. There he met artist Karin Bergoo, who urged him to take up watercolor-the medium for which he would become best known. The two married and moved to rural Sundborn, Sweden, making there home in a riverside cottage called Likka Hyttnas.

In Sundborn, Larsson found his artistic voice, documenting his home, family (complete with eight children), friends and neighbors with obvious delight. Each image in this calendar was published in his turn-of-the-century series A Home.
