‘From royal salons with exquisite Pompeian ornament to modest spatter-painted Beidermeier  halls, Håken Groth and Fritz von der Schulenburg open the doors on an astonishing sequence of interiors which will come as a revelation to all but a few fortunate travellers; some, intensely private, are little known even in Sweden.

Fritz von der Schulenburg’s marvellously evocative photographs, all specially taken for this book, present in detail the decoration and furnishings of twenty houses and apartments. Håken Groth traces the evolution of the Neoclassical style in Sweden, placing it in its wider European context, and explores each of the building and its history.’

Includes drawings, plans and a Family Tree of the Holstein-Gottorp and Bernadotte Dynasties.

Book Condition: Good - Very good. Dust Wrapper – Very good.
