Sven Nordqvist

“Mixed pictures”

Åbergs Museum is now showing an exhibition with the children’s book author and illustrator Sven Nordqvist who broke through with the book “Pancake cake” about the old man Pettson and his cat Findus. In addition to his own books, Sven has illustrated to other authors, such as the books about Mamma Mu and Crow. Sven’s pictures are very detailed and eventful and he has, among other things. won both the August Prize and the Astrid Lindgren Prize. The imagination is central in his books and pictures where the children are invited into another world beyond everyday life. Sven has been drawing and painting all his life and is one of our most beloved illustrators.

The exhibition is shown until 25 September 2022.
