Canvas with the painting Far, far away he saw something shining and glittering by Theodor Kittelsen from 1900 (Norweigan title: Langt, langt borte så han noe lyse og glitre). The work is part of the series Soria Moria Castle consisting of twelve paintings. The illustrated children's book with Kittelsen's own text was first published in 1911.
Theodor Kittelsen's portrayal of the boy Askeladden who sees the fantasy land Soria Moria in the distance, has become a symbol of hope for the future and the dream of success.
Askeladden has walked a long way and finally he sees his goal - the brilliant castle Soria Moria: "Then he had lunch in the old cliff and went out into the wide world to find the castle. It carried over forest, valley and rocks. Far, far away, something like a little star. Then he finally came closer and closer, and even further away, east of the sun and west of the moon, lay the castle of Soria Moria in shining golden light. "
Theodor Kittelsen is a Norwegian artist who, like Swedish John Bauer, is known for his fairy tale motifs with trolls and princesses. His work is still iconic in many Nordic homes, but despite being hailed as a national artist in Norway, he is hardly known outside Scandinavia.

Got home a wonderful poster this week and was surprisingly pleased. The image was not pixelated (as I have experienced before when I ordered from other websites) and the paper was thicker which made the poster almost feel like a real painting. Became really nice when I framed it. I was really happy!
Ordered 4 posters from Historly and am so happy! Super nice quality, nice motives and fast delivery.
The wall became more alive!
Sent for a poster that arrived within a few days and completely met expectations!
I am very pleased. Find products. Nicely baked and well received.
Very nice! However, sensitive paper
Bought "The Speed Police" and is incredibly pleased to have a timeless picture that shows Swedish history. This at the same time as having received a picture and frame in cruel quality on the purchase.
Fast feedback and good service
Very satisfied with the quality and delivery.
A very nice printed matter. Regret though that I did not take the biggest poster.
High quality print. Fast delivery. Appreciate your wide selection of historical motifs.
Is actually really super happy! Whether you are someone who can really nerd yourself into history, or just like interesting historical motifs. So it's one (or more) good buys. A little expensive but after the paintings are up, I still think it's easily worth the money. Good resolution and nice layout with title and year for the pictures. Has already received good comments about the paintings, the eyes easily stick to the pictures and the pictures become even easier to talk about. Definitely recommend!
Incredibly satisfied with our work by Strindberg, the quality of the paper is Unbeatable 🙌🏼
Satisfied with the whole experience!
