Gunilla Bergström's donation
Gunilla Bergström is one of Sweden's foremost picture book creators of all time. "One day, I'll darn well draw the soul!" This bold thought was the beginning of about 40 children's books with unforgettable characters. However, it is Alfons Åberg who without comparison has become the most famous of Gunilla Bergström's characters.
The Nordic Watercolour Museum's art collection has now been enriched with a generous gift from Gunilla Bergström who donates the original images to two of her books: Three Cheers for Alfie’s Daddy! (1993) and There Goes Alfie the Thief! (1991). In connection with the donation, the museum has also acquired the original images for the book Just Tie It, Alfie Atkins! (1988).
On display in Thordénrummet.
