Carl Larsson (kärl lär´sôn), 1853–1919, Swedish painter and illustrator. He was a popular and imaginative illustrator and was equally successful as a watercolorist. In watercolor he painted exquisite interiors that influenced Swedish decorative arts. He is perhaps best known, however, for his historical mural decorations in fresco for the national museum and the opera house in Stockholm.
