Posts with the painting The Princess and the Troll by John Bauer from 1913. Beautiful Bianca Maria walks through the deep forest one summer evening with her father and mother.
The picture was published with Helena Nyblom's saga The replacements in the fairy tale collection "Among elves and trolls". The story is about a wizard who became so fond of little princess Bianca Maria that he steals her from the cradle and puts his own wizard there instead. The wizard and the princess Bianca Maria grow up and neither of them fits in with their new families. When they are old enough, they both flee back to their original homes.
John Bauer's interpretation of the trolls as a natural being is clear in their true-to-nature shapes and colors. The contrast with the princess, and sekthe electricity shift's depiction of "the ideal child", represents innocence and naivety. Bauer's works have shaped generations of children and their perceptions of the forest and its various fairy tale creatures. He has therefore had a great influence on Nordic folklore and storytelling.

Like the slightly different motifs, and the stories behind the picture.
Highest quality pool both print and packaging, in addition there is a lot to choose from.
Found a motif I was fond of, but not in the usual gallery of historical lights, they contacted the rights holder. I just needed to choose the size, and if the motif would be horizontal or vertical and then there was to pick up at the postman. Sickly smooth and nice to know that everything went right, it also turned out nice with the frame I bought from them.
Nice picture, fast delivery, very satisfied
