LENA ANDERSON’S WORLD
19 JUNE – 22 SEPTEMBER 2019
In the exhibition Lena Anderson’s World, we have the opportunity to see everything from the first idea sketches to the detailed watercolours printed in the books. Of course, there is Linnea, as well as other favourites including Maja, Mollan, Storm-Stina, Kotten and Rabbit. Come and listen to stories in Storm-Stina’s house, learn to tell the time with Uncle Knut, join Linnea on Monet’s
bridge or call in on Maja in her tomato-filled greenhouse. We will also get to know the woman behind the books and see some of Lena Anderson’s watercolours and charcoal drawings previously unseen by the public.
Ever since the book that made her name, Linnea in Monet’s Garden, Anderson’s paintings and stories have captured the curiosity and instilled the love of reading of several generations. Themes running through her art are nature, flowers and the desire to share knowledge.
Lena Anderson has published 46 books and received Swedish and international awards and accolades.
The exhibition is suitable for all ages.
