Painters Work Carl Larsson (1853 – 1919): The Vine, 1884, Watercolour, 60 x 92 cm, Nationalmuseum, Stockholm
The Vine might be interpreted as a light-hearted allegory of affection – girl harvests the grapes for the wine that intoxicates the person.
Along with his nice technical virtuosity, Carl Larsson was excellently outfitted to reach the Neo-Rococo style, which relied to an awesome extent on the power to color with illusory brilliance. The Vine was purchased by Herman Friedländer when it was proven on the Opponent Exhibition Vid Seinens strand (On the Seine River Financial institution) in Stockholm in 1885. Friedländer later lent it to the World’s Truthful in Paris in 1889. (Nationalmuseum.se)
