    I love Carl Larsson's work his landscapes his portraits his folksy home decorations but although I have long been aware in a sort of peripheral way that his paintings had been incorporated into a number of picture books I didn't think to track them down until a goodreads friend thanks Krista reviewed one This one It goes without saying that it is a beautiful book but A Farm is also immensely educational in an engaging fun way Not only did I learn a little bit about Larsson himself and his life at his country home Little Hyttnäs but I also gained uite a bit of insight into the farming life in rural Sweden at the turn of the 19th20th century This book with text by Lennart Rudström based upon Larsson's own recollections and painting by Larsson documents a year in the life of Spadarvet the farm just next door to Little Hyttnäs that Larsson purchased in 1897The text is uite extensive so this is not one for beginning readers or for younger children with short attention spans although even they might appreciate the artwork but for those with an appreciation for uiet joys and the details of life as it was lived than one hundred years ago in Sweden From the thinning of the trees in winter to the cow herding in summer the many activities of the farm find their way into the story while little informational asides also text heavy give further information The artwork is simply luminous the sort of paintings one likes to pore over or page through again and again Recommended to all Carl Larsson fans and to those young readers with an interest in farming practices of the past or who enjoy historical fiction

    Absolutely gorgeous book of 19th century farm paintings by Swedish artist Carl Larsson I was not familiar with his work but the style is like this cool blend of impressionist and Japanese woodcuts with feathery backgrounds and sharply etched details Really an amazing historical record of farming techniues and technologies in the late 1800s early 1900s

    This is the story of the hard life of the artist Carl Larsson on the farm where he grew up and how the whole family worked together It is illustrated with his remarkable paintings of those times

    The art demands a five star rating But the narration of an agriculture year in Sweden is fantastic Larsson's tableaus are reminiscent of Jean François Millet's rural paintings Larsson depicts the necessary jobs of the rural self sufficient farmer Cutting firewood putting up ice for the year repairing sleighs harrowing the fields sowing oats by hand milking cows digging ditches making charcoal I didn't know people made charcoal but watched YouTube videos about itThe text always explained how the same tasks are done in modern day Farmers have spreaders and don't have to rake manure by hand The culmination of the book is the painting Christmas Eve The harvest is in cooked and ready to be eaten An old man sits in a wing chair attended by two young children Girls with crowns of braided hair inspect the layout Older men inhabit the background He captures the moment before the feast begins It is gloriousThere is a sense of the Wendell Berry 'membership' of a family and community working together This is a book that would appeal to artists to farmers to live off the land homesteaders and to all who enjoy outdoor scenes
