Art

We’ve been home in Sweden for a short visit after almost two years of isolation & are now traveling a couple of weeks in Germany before we return home again. We’ve made many visits to various museums. Partly for the art, partly for the architecture (many museum buildings are fantastic) but also for the great silence when you slowly walk around looking & taking in the works. It’s a very calm & soothing environment.

Old paintings

Imagine being able to find old paintings, things that have previously been called junk art, and place them in well-chosen places in the home to bring out some character.

Textile designer

A large exhibition, “Wanja Djanaieff and her twenty-two favorite colors” is now shown at Marabouparken art gallery, displaying her work through the ages & confirms her as one of Sweden’s most influential textile designers.

Wanja was born February 1941 & almost completely unknown to most people, but not her patterns. During the 1960s & 70s, she drew hundreds of textile patterns for clothes, furniture & fabrics, which were used & spread all over Sweden.

Her work became known to a wide audience when she designed clothes for the Swedish Olympic team in Munich in 1972. The pattern with yellow crowns on a blue background becomes Djanaieff’s perhaps most famous work.

Another master, Paul Cézanne, contributed to Grünewald’s rigour geometrical in drawing, to simple geometric forms. Some of his most famous works are Portrait of Ivan in an armchair & Bullfighting.
