Fine Art Auction

17 april


Lars Lerin holds a unique position in the Swedish art scene. No other Swedish artist reaches such a broad audience and is loved by as many people as he is today. It’s not common for an artist to become both beloved by the public and respected as a media personality. Perhaps it’s precisely the combination of exceptional technical skill and the ability to touch people’s hearts that resonates with so many. He’s also not afraid to be personal and has shared his, in many ways, challenging life story.

Lerin’s remarkable watercolors transport us into silence. To clearcuts and misty mountain landscapes, to the harbor of Lofoten, and to the forests of Värmland. His artistry is deeply rooted in nature and the landscape, and he has a unique ability to capture its nuances. Through his watercolors, Lerin not only creates visual representations of the landscape but also imbues them with an emotional charge that carries an almost meditative power.

Kenneth Wahlström was a well-known business figure in Karlstad. In addition to his successful entrepreneurship, he was also a devoted art collector. His collection includes hundreds of works by various artists; glass art by Kjell Engman and delicate nature paintings by Anna Gardell-Ericson, but above all, an impressive collection of works by Lars Lerin. Stockholms Auktionsverk has been entrusted with the sale of this unique collection. The auction presents 70 pieces, providing us with the opportunity to trace Lerin’s development as an artist, from his early oil works, where he seeks his expression, to the masterful watercolors of recent years dominated by nature scenes. We are delighted to welcome the public to explore this auction and collection on this unique occasion.
