Jenny Nyström is one of the most well-known and beloved artists in Sweden. Her popularity is primarily based on her many illustrations, numbering more than 10,000 for children and Christmas cards, many of which are still in production and are frequently reproduced both as greeting cards or advertisements. The purpose of this exhibition is to give a new perspective to Jenny Nyström’s artistic career and her importance for the pictorial tradition in Sweden. Also, one should not forget that she was a marvellous painter as well!
