Watercolor worlds at the American Swedish Institute, Minneapolis

Moody fishing villages, lost-in-time Indian and Iranian architecture, bird studies, a seemingly endless birch forest, dusty library shelves, and so much more can be found right now in the galleries at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The work of Swedish painter Lars Lerin, these are among the 194 watercolors (many of which are components in larger pieces) on display in The Watercolor Worlds of Lars Lerin at the American Swedish Institute. A well-known figure in Sweden, Lerin’s work is largely unknown in the USA, making this exhibit a rare opportunity to see a wide variety of this master painter’s work.

The Watercolor Worlds of Lars Lerin is only on display at the American Swedish Institute until May 22. After that, all pieces will return to Sweden, so make plans to visit the museum today!

  1. We, too,thought these watercolors were breathtaking. I especially liked the moody dark skies of mid-winter, the long nights, the days of watery sunlight.

Your turn!
