the larsson's children. 1 lisbeth

when i was a child, i was fascinated by the paintings carl larsson made of his children. i didn't grow up a lot, so i still like them.
during august, i decided to make four dolls from pictures of his youngest children.



lisbeth was the second daughter of karine and carl larsson. she was born in 1891.


it's very difficult to learn details about the personality of lisbeth.



so, i decide she was a rascal! a nice one, of course, but the pictures his father painted showed her like a playful trouble maker.

edit: my friend anna sent me informations about lisbeth: she became a physiotherapist, was married to Gustav Brunkman and had 3 daughters - Kersti, Karin and Birgit. Lisbeth died in 1979.

thank you anna! 

these for dolls will be for sale by auction on september 8 (9.00pm EDT) on my hyenacart
