The Carl Larsson Exhibitions at the Amos Anderson Museum in Helsinki in 1981/82 and the Brooklyn Museum in New York late in 1982 make it clear that perennial interest in this artist continues even in our day. . . . .What is the basis for this so constant interest in an artist who is hardly "modern"? At all events, what we may call the "generation gap" does not seem to have been a factor regarding this interest in the case of Larsson. The present work seeks an answer to this question in, I feel, a new form, in that it confronts the reader with his work, his life and also his feeling in a sequence which has hitherto not been attempted.
