Poster with a painting by Gustaf Cederström from 1884 depicting Karls XII's funeral. The painting shows a fictional scene where the deceased King Karl XII is carried home by his soldiers after being shot at the battle of Halden in Norway in 1718.
Cederström wanted to make the painting as realistic as possible and therefore created a large number of sketches, conducted several studies outdoors and also hired a professional model who had to lie down on a stretcher to stage the equality.
Each soldier in the painting is a carefully painted individual. Cederström portrayed a mixture of models, friends, colleagues and relatives. The man in the middle with a bandage on his head is Cederström's big brother and the child next to the hunter was his six-year-old daughter Carola.
The painting was completed in 1878, before the international art exhibition in Paris and was sold shortly afterwards to the Russian Grand Duke Constantine Constantinovich. The fact that the painting depicting the equality of their hero, King Karl XII, was sold to Russia upset many Swedes enormously. A fundraiser was started to be able to pay Cederström a sum to paint a replica which was later donated to the Swedish National Museum.

Very nice paintings
I am happy with my purchase. There was good print in both the pictures I ordered - a work of art and a vintage photograph. However, would like the web page to dynamically display the crop in different sizes.
Good quality and fast delivery. Super happy!
Historical nature drawings have always been a big interest for us.
The "Louisiana Heron" print we found goes very nicely in our house, and adds just the right touches of color. Thanks!
Much too pleased! Surprised by the quality.
I can not give any feedback because I have not received the product I ordered yet.
Ordered posters from three different suppliers at the same time, and of these three, I was without a doubt most satisfied with the posters from Historly. The paper was of super quality, which gave the picture an exclusive feeling - definitely worth the price. The posters were also delivered to the door, and were wrapped very well. Short delivery time too! Will definitely book from Historly again.
Bought "the Hunt of Odin" and am so happy with what I got home. Good quality and not the same plastic feeling you can get from other posters.
Super nice and so fast delivery
Shipping went in just a few days so got the product very quickly. I contacted the customer service because I was unsure if I could pick up the package from the agent it was sent to and wanted to change to another. The customer service was then very helpful and clearly told what options were available.
The product itself I experience is of high quality. The paper is thick and has been transported in such a way that it is not damaged.
Unusually fast and uncomplicated delivery.
I am so happy that I was able to buy the picture of the signatures for the petition that Elin Wägner pushed for women's suffrage. Especially as one of the names is my grandmother! A pioneer in many ways.
Best site to buy posters on. Different type of styles and good quality.
Can recommend historly highly!
