Sofie & Cecilia : a novel
By Katherine Ashenburg
The story of a lifelong female friendship, set in the art world of Sweden between 1900 and 1940 and loosely based on the lives of celebrated artists Carl Larsson and Anders Zorn. Ashenburg transports us behind both the public and domestic scenes of these larger-than-life men to reveal the lesser-known but equally rich stories of the women who married them.
