Långgrundet blues


One of the houses at Långgrundet. This is also one of the old worker´s homes, a timber/wood house built after the same blueprints as the brick house shown in the painting Stugu.

Each house contained four apartments, and living on the bottom floor near the street had the highest status, while living on the second floor with the windows pointing away from the street wasn´t so hot. Ridiculous, huh? This status even shows in the tile stoves in each apartment. The stove in the lower apartment towards the street has a lot more decor than the stove towards the garden on the second floor. What can you say… humans, huh?

19,5 x 20 cm, watercolours on Fabriano Artistico 300 gsm rough grain watercolour paper.
