Sofie & CeciliaBook - 2018
This is the story of a lifelong female friendship, set in the art world of Sweden between 1900 and 1940 and loosely based on the lives of celebrated artists Carl Larsson and Anders Zorn. Katherine Ashenburg transports us behind both the public and domestic scenes - and canvasses - of these larger-than-life men to reveal the lesser-known but equally astounding and rich stories of the women who married them: restlessly creative artist-in-her-own-right Sofie Olsson, and fiercely private and intelligent curator Cecilia Vogt.
