Description

This embroidered cloth is based on Carl Larsson’s watercolour "Suzanne with Gunlög" painted in 1913. Gunlög was Carl and Karin’s first grandchild, baby daughter of the couple’s eldest daughter Suzanne. In a letter from April 1913 to Johan Norling, editor of the Idun magazine, who had asked about the unusual name, Carl wrote: “Gunlög? Oh yes, she’s most certainly a girl. But originally it was an Icelandic man’s name, but in a poem by Stagnelius, he gave it to a woman. Should really be called Gunslöd.”

Contents: Linen cloth, red cotton thread, bleached lacemaking thread and needle.

Stitches required: plait stitch and hemstitch. Size: 160cm x 68cm.
