A Very Scandinavian Evening: Swedish Artists Carl and Karin Larsson

LarssonDate: Fri­day, May 29, 2015
Time: Doors open at 6.30 pm; Sand­wiches 7 pm; Talk 8 pm
Price: $5 per sand­wich
Con­tact and RSVP:  swedishculturalsociety.ca@nullgmail.com

Carl Larsson’s illus­tra­tions for his book Ett Hem (A Home) more than a cen­tury ago defined a “Swedish Style” that was light, colour­ful, infor­mal.  It seems obvi­ous now that his wife Karin was inti­mately involved in cre­at­ing the rooms Carl used as a stage for their family’s dramas.

“Swedish Style” with spe­cial ref­er­ence to the con­tri­bu­tions of Karin Lars­son, an illus­trated talk.

A piece of but­tered rye bread with some­thing laid on, with meat, fish, cheese and top­pings.  It sounds sim­ple enough but the Smør­re­brød, the Dan­ish open sand­wich, is Dan­ish every­day prac­tise raised to one of the great con­tri­bu­tions the world’s culi­nary arts.

“Dan­ish Style”.  Smør­re­brød godt belagt med meget pynt (Dan­ish sand­wiches well stacked and dec­o­rated) $5 per sand­wich, bar ser­vice available.

In coop­er­a­tion with the Swe­den House Soci­ety and the Swedish Cul­tural Society
