Composing Figures Within an Interior

Sometimes I find interesting compositions in art auction catalogues.

There is a charming work on paper, titled, "Syskon," by Carl Larsson, being offered in the upcoming Sotheby's London sale of Scandinavian art on June 27, 2007.

The work depicts two of the artist's children--a more-or-less frontal view of one of the artist's daughters seated and a more-or-less profile view of her brother standing--in the drawing room of the artist's home.

The lot number for this work is 358.
