1942 Painting, 'China Dogs,' Eva Jacobsson

Large 1942 Painting, 'Flowers and China Dogs,' by Swedish artist,

A froth of delicious colours make up this jolly bouquet, bruised delphiniums, salmon pink sweet peas and sunny daisies. Over an oval table a blue and white checkered table cloth sprawls, housing two delightful Staffordshire dogs.

About the artist

Eva Holmberg-Jacobsson was a Swedish visual artist born in Malmö. She painted naive scenery and interiors in a lively colour palette, often bathing in a white yellow light.

Jacobsson was the daughter of engineer Carl Holmberg and Gerda Helena Jonasson and from 1942 married Karl-Erik Jacobsson. She studied at the Skåne School of Painting in Malmö in 1927 and at the Otte Sköld painter's school in Stockholm in 1929 and at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris and during studies to, among others, Hungary, Spain and France.

Separately, she performed at the SDS Hall in Malmö in 1942 and at Malmö Museum 1946 and at the Black Brother Monastery in Lund in 1952. She participated in joint exhibitions with Skåne Art Society and Helsingborg Art Association.
