Swedish painter

Nils Dardel is a post-impressionist Swedish painter. He was born October 1888 in Södermanland, Sweden & he died in New York May 1943.
His life was hectic & dandy-like. He studied at the Stockholm Royal Academy of Arts & moved to Paris in 1910, and while in Paris, he traveled to North Africa, Japan, Peru, Mexico & New York.
He married Baroness Thora Klinkowström in 1921, a Swedish artist living in Paris as well. Modigliani made her portrait in 1918.
(Also one of my favourite painter).

Funkis an often used slang expression, colloquial – functionalism, (1930s) a modernist style in architecture & interior decoration guided by function. I would say that its also related to memories & preferences for many of us too. Looking back to an era of modernism, innovation & functionality – that set a lot of things in motion.

Box shaped houses

I happen to like simple square box-shaped houses & buildings. I like the simple shape that showcases exactly what you see without fuss. Angles & crannies are not my melody even if I do appreciate it because of its intermittency & charm…when it’s old, used & lived in. But, it’s like it is with preferences. And still, with a straight shape, it can look so different & express so much, that it’s hard to believe. Anyway, I thought you might like a post about nicely box shaped houses.
