~Rolf Lidberg

.

A great Scandinavian troll painter
Rolf Lidberg died Februari 2005, 74 years old.
He was an expert of Swedish orchids and guided
many botanical walks in Sweden and also produced
watercolour illustrations of Swedish flora, but is
probably most well-known for his funny trolls that
did more or less the same as people in those parts
of the world, they just lived longer (say 500 years),
in complete harmony with nature and had tails and
longer ears and bigger noses.
His paintings were lighter than John Bauer's,
both in technique and subject-matter,
but the influence is obvious.

Hoi Anna,

Ik ben al jaren op zoek naar een tekening die in de slaapkamer hing van mijn oma. Dankzij jou heb ik die nu gevonden! Het is de bovenste tekening. Bij de poster die bij mijn oma in de logeerkamer hing, zat nog een gouden gloed om de staart van de kleine trol en de bloemetjes. Wauw, super! Dank voor het posten!

Hartelijke groeten,
Geertje
